    These Are A Few Of The Reasons I Love This Hobby !

    Been having a slow down at work so Ive been able to fortunately bump the detecting time up. .. These are finds from the last couple of hunts. The copper coins around here usually come out pretty bad , it took alot of patience to get the dates off the Indian Heads, one of them is a 1859, the first year for IHs , the other an 1863.... , they along with the buttons were found in the same area. One nice button is a Philadelphia Police button , the other an Eagle button..

    Went to a corn field and found the large cent , you can see ONE CENT on the reverse and the silhouette of Lady Liberty at a certain angle but not in the pic.

    The Roosie cleaned up with a little baking soda rub.

    The religious medalion is from Italy.


    Cant wait to get out there again

    Hey Jim,

    That's a nice pistol bullet you have there. Check here:
    http://www.baymediapro.com/collectio...ls.asp?BID=479

    It looks like your bullet is a variant for an old Colt Revolver.

    Also, anytime you guys need to ID a bullet or cartridge dating to the Civil War, this place is GREAT!
