    Find of a LIFETIME! Wow!

    I want to start by thanking Austin McCullough for his hosting me and Russ yesterday in Charleston...we hunted a spot of his and one of ours and came away with some real goodies...I'll take quality over quantity ANY day. So, I'll get right to it!

    We were about to head out, Austin had already gone to the car and me and Russ were not far behind him...got one last choppy signal under a root. After digging around for a minute or two, I finally got the target out of the ground...my first reaction was all that work for a piece of scrap brass...picked it up and saw the hole, then the stamped number on the bottom and I KNEW EXACTLY what I had!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1847 Charleston Slave Tag. Occupation: Porter



    Also got a me a nice British Half Cent from the site as well....


    Here's Austin's 1789 1/2 Reale...


    Pictured here is Russ' 1-piece artillery button, and Austin's Marine and Rifleman's buttons...


    Group shot of our better finds on the day which includes flat buttons and Russ' little piece of cut silver...


    Thanks for looking!!!! I'm still on cloud 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes, video is coming soon!

    Noteworthy! To be the first in our modern day to hold it in your hand must make you wonder about the forgotten sole who wore it! A grim reminder of mans inhumanity to man...
