    FINALLY!!!!!!!! U.S. CIVIL WAR BUCKLE! FIRST EVER!!!!!!

    Hello everyone! I am quite excited to share my find today! Me and my friend Brian were out all day hunting a supposed rev. war site, and it did not give us even a flat button. We went to our Civil War site that has given some bullets and buttons. This particular site is SMOKED. There are no good signals but lots of iron. I dug for 2 hours and got 3 nonferrous targets. One of them was my very FIRST EVER U.S. Belt plate! I cant believe it. I knew what it was as soon as I felt it in the hole. It was about 7inches down, and letters down. It has the puppy paws and all still intact. This is probably the coolest relic pulled from this site! There is barely any damage but it is bent! I'll take it!

    I know people post them regularly on this site, but I would like you guys to consider where I live. I live in central North Carolina, a ways from any significant Civil War battle. We NEVER see these things dug around where I live, unless you go to Bentonville, and I believe they just discovered a few in Raleigh. I think that we may be on a campsite now, because both me and my friend dug Virginia cuff buttons. Not bad for an ACE 250! Theyre great machines yall! Thanks for looking at my buckle! I am SOOOOO HAPPY!

    Congrats on buckle--bet that felt good! I've been detecting for over 28 yrs and never even one CW buckle--but other CW finds like bullets,cannon ball parts,and a confederate ordnance fuse--and I've found a 1830's militia buckle once. I would like to find a US or Confederate buckle--and know some folks who have found them but I'd like to be that lucky----CONGRATS MAN! Now the ACE 250 looks good enough for a relic machine I bet--ha ha!

    The back of that buckle is in beautiful shape. Fantastic find, brother!

    I'm picking up a second hand Ace 250 for a good price. It will be a backup machine, but also something to offer to landowners when I ask for permission. Hopefully I can increase my low permission success rate by offering them to come out and split 50/50.

    Congrats on a fine relic! You are not far from Johnston's retreat route so there could be CW relics most anywhere around there. That is indeed a nice buckle!
