    CHARLESTON SLAVE TAG!!!

    Stopped by our new site yesterday afternoon for a quick hunt and man am I glad I did! Hit the plowed area first and didn't find anything so I moved into the thicker grass area where it's harder to get the coil down but hadn't been worked as hard. Found two flat buttons and then got a good high signal and thought maybe it might be my turn to find a coin. Disappointed to see it was just a piece of copper plate, I thought. Then I saw it had numbers on it. Still didn't realize what it was until my buddy handed it back to me and at a glance I see "servant"! Taking a closer look it hits me....I just found a slave tag!! It's bent but you can see Charleston at the top with a number, servant under that and below servant the date 1855 (855 is visible, cant see the 1). I'm so thankful and feel really blessed to dig this piece of history. Super excited too. Couldn't wait to get to the

    Just wow. What a great find. I wonder if you could look up the owner of the tag by the number? Hit that tall grass hard.

    (There's a part of me that feels weird about being so excited over this. Such a historical piece but what a horrible life for the holder of the tag. It's like getting excited over finding a wedding band in Treblinka. Believe me, I'm not trying to bring ethics into such an awesome find. Just interesting how actually seeing a piece like this can bring out emotion.)

    Congratulations on finding such a rare piece of our history. While it is an unfortunate part of history it is not something to be forgotten. Definitely a banner find. You should consult with an expert who can restore this tag. It is amazing what can be done to flatten it by someone that knows how to do it.

    My banner vote is in. Congratulations on your find. It's an historic find. It is part of our past. It certainly isn't part of our future so I don't personally understand why people get upset by these.
