    Impressive! I wonder if it ever whacked any heads during the war. It was very common for soldiers to use their guns as clubs after they fired their single shot.

But mine is kind of a generic example, and I like yours much better for obvious reasons. Awesome find for sure!! And banner (my vote is in!).

    Bill, the area you hunt in (South East Virginia) is loaded with early relics that I can only dream of finding. I'd love to find something from the 1600's in my area but unfortunately, the first settlers came in the 1730's-1740's in my area. I shouldn't be complaining though, as this area is extremely rich with civil war history and earlier. The butt cap you find is incredible, just knowing it's from the 1600s! Thanks for posting those pictures, it's eye candy to me.

    Thanks Evolution!!! This site has been very good to me so far! I've only hinted it for 6-7 hours in total in a span of 3 days. Because summer is coming, school will be let out and I'll have more than 2 hours a week to dig :lol:

    Underminer, I heard about that! Would the butt cap take damage such as dents from hitting skulls? I wish we knew the history behind what we find more... We can only hypothesis about what stories they could tell. It's what the hobby is about for us relic hunters

    Thanks Nancy!!! The batwing piece is awesome because it has all the rivets inside! Maybe the other sling buckle is nearby.

    Thanks everyone so much for putting this on the banner! You guys are awesome and I will definitely be posting on this forum more frequently! I was so excited when I woke up and saw the beautiful left facing eagle covered with dirt on the top of the home page! Again I appreciate all the kind words

    Good luck and happy hunting everyone!!!

    Big congrats! I would be fine with any one of those coppers or relics but the butt plate takes the cake. Truly banner IMO.

    Also, Weird thing is I have the same exact key hole as yours, I also have the other item that looks sorta like a key hole, it goes to a bucket.

    Thanks so much del and coinman! I went back yesterday for a quick hunt and the farmer was cutting the hay in the former farm fields can't wait to get back there. Here's my take for Saturday... Anyone know what that circular buckle was used for? Got some really neat buttons also. Love buttons, they are all so unique. The colonial dandy button's shank is not even in the center of the button

    You got an incredible haul once again. You find the amount of finds as someone that has been a hardcore relic hunter for decades. I am completely envious once more, congrats on such great finds. I bet some more banner worthy finds are waiting to be found.

    Rock on, Coinman

    You really hit a gold mine. It is so rewarding to find an old site that no one else has ever hit. Which can be hard to do where I am. You found a ton of really cool and exciting finds and I can tell by your post how excited you were. Great ain't it? Well done. Good recoveries and super history. I'm sure, as you are, that there's more there. WTG! Thanks for sharing. Banner well deserved!
