    Three artillery shells in one day!

    Had some great luck today. I only had a few hours this afternoon, but managed to outdo my wildest expectations. The Confederate Archer shell is a first for me. It's a rare little shell and I never expected to come across one. I also found a Parrott and a Hotchkiss, plus plenty of bullets and old CW era sinkers. I'll be working on a video of the hunt, and think I have some pretty good footage. Thanks for checking out my post!

    Wanted to add this picture of the Archer shell after one day of electrolysis. Another day or two and it will be right as rain. Apparently it is a rare variant of a rare shell. Still smiling ear to ear!

    Clean them up and put them on display. It's starting to look like a little museum in my basement.

    Man that must be a real nice display. Make sure you mark them as to what they are. You don't want that stuff to be trashed one day. We won't be around forever.
