    Virginia Militia Oval, Virginia Cuff, Spanish Silver and More

    Hey Guys, got back out and started scanning in a far section of the field


    and the first thing I popped out


    was a cuff button...but it had so much buildup on it I couldn't tell what it was without cleaning...so I put it


    in the pouch and continued to scan, a few minutes later, I got a screamer that ended up being a Bayonet


    Scabbard throat and so I started to search around that relic and popped out several bullets including an


    Enfield and a odd .58 one-ring bullet next to it that is similar to a Gardner but the ring is definitely much


    higher up than a normal one-ring Gardner...i've seen this bullet before but is not in my reference books.


    The bullet is dropped but looks as if maybe the 'nose' of it was cut off by a soldier. After that, I got


    another screamer that was locking on at +86 so I knew it was going to be something good,


    when I opened it up out flew a Virginia Militia Oval Shoulder Beltplate with


    the pin still attached to the back. 99% of the time, the attachment on the back is missing, so I was really


    happy with that. I ended up digging some other nice relics and ended the day was the 1857 Seated


    Quarter.

    Got out yesterday and got a clipped Pistareen and a decent 1724 King George I halfpenny. Thanks for


    looking guys

    You have a terrific site there. While all of the finds are noteworthy, I think that shoulder belt plate with the pin intact is something special!

    Any one of those finds would make the day or maybe the year for most of us, but you got them all from one hunt which is way over the top! Congrats!
