    Excellent recovery Quindy !!! You certainly made the right decision regarding how to spend your time today

    I have never dug a US Eagle Breastplate, I am surprised that it gave such a low number on the F 75.

    Ok so now you going to cut that hay?? It was a hot day today. Nice find on your 3rd breast plate. I have heard they were discarded as they made an inviting target as well. Congratulations Quindy.

    Thanks MT4, G2d, Kevin, Donnie (Thanks for the tip my friend), M86, Deb. (Cntrydancer), JG, Fly, Ironman, SK, & Chug (where's Red?-LOL).
    Breezie and Nana-thanks and I'll remind you both of wanting cold weather this Winter-LOL. I will post the restored plate for you later Sirtom. Hogge, my wife and I were vistibng the Corinth, MS battle area last month and Robert invited us to his home for an afternoon. He's a dying breed who takes great pride in his work. Thanks BB and good job on the W & E cover pic. I hope you, Diggergirl, and Shane get to hunt Monday. Hunker down there!!
    Matt- You, Papa Bear, and Bird will all find a plate. You three hunt good areas and are apparently good hunters. Johhny Reb, if it was from a CS camp, I would leave it alone. Richard, great article on axe restoration in W & E. I believe you have written articles before-LOL.
    Steve, I was surprised with the low reading. I guess since the rolled up nature and the fact that the lead was pointing up made the difference. I would expect a "72" or so. The "55" was a T2 like reading.
    TnMtns, it was hot early and I had a fresh shirt to change into when I returned to the truck. They repotedly did discard them regularly. We will never know the reason for sure. Good luck hunting my friend.
    Thanks to all who looked and HH, Quindy.

    BB & Shane, send some of that Isaac rain up to Tennessee!!!

    It's really too humid here too JB but I wanted to try out that new Piranha shovel. So far, I'd say it's been pretty lucky for me. Three trips with it and dug relics each trip.
    You will have to hunt hard to top the late 2011 and early 2012 hunting season you enjoyed my friend. Good luck this Fall, Quindy.
