    Not 100% sure myself. I was told it's a slave tag of some sort. I'd like to know more on that too.

    Yes it is an 1848 Slave tag or badge only made in Charleston SC. The occupation of the wearer was mechanic. They are copper and collectible especially in this area. More information can be found in a book by Harry Hutchins and his brother.

    I cant wait to find a gold coin. But that slave tag can be linked back to a person in history. I will do research, if you have a cleaner photo. I think that would be more of an interesting connection to history.

    That is BEAUTIFUL. It's pretty much the Holy Grail of metal detecting imo.

    Big congrats on that one. I've dug quite a few really nice gold rings and even a chain but I hope that one day; just once (well; at least once) that I come across a gold coin. I can imagine the rush you must have had when that baby appeared.

Of course, nobody got a picture, and my friend doesn't talk to this guy anymore
    I know of one that was found in coastal Connecticut, on a 1600's era property. This one is absolutely spectacular. I've never seen one as nice, even in my dreams.
