    Shoe Buckle "like, light gauge" 57 snider casing.

    It was a group hunt day and 4 turned out to investigate some old foundations.

    Not the best, but a site picture.

    When I saw the "shoe buckle" in the hole I was happy ...for a second. It is very thin, and looks cheap to me. Maybe someone knows what it was used for ?

    Stamped "EMERSON"
    "PAT. DEC. 1.74"

    My other finds were a huge .57 SNIDER casing, watch cover, heel plate, and live .308 round.

    It's dangerous to be right when those with a thimbleful of perceived authority are wrong.

    Good finds. The .57 Snider packed one HELL of a "wallop"
    If your first thought is "What is it worth", sell your detector and get a JOB.
    Stop "American Digger" and "Diggers" while you can still HUNT.

    Neat looking site and nice relics. No idea on the shoe buckle. Congrats to Navy Davy on the big copper.
