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!

Yes, very nice! Just goes to show, while high end machines can give one an advantage, the REAL secret is putting your coil over a good target.
