    "Sheet Iron" CS Plate found this weekend!

    Boy what a weekend! This place I located is a virgin Confederate cavalry camp I found and have been detecting for a year now. I've found some really nice things there, but this takes the cake. It was super hot and I was digging all iron readings, cause I love iron artifacts. I had dug into a hole and pulled out a piece of a rusted knife, then took my pinpointer and located a second piece. For a third time I took my pinpointer and said to myself, "Hmm...this must be the last piece of that knife." Then, with my shovel, this oval popped out and when I turned it over "CS" was staring back at me. This is a "sheet iron" Confederate States belt plate and has a rarity of 8 out of a 10, a 10 being the rarest Confederate plates. I was so excited all I could do(after calling my bro first) was finish checking the hole it was in. Well half a Richmond spur, a complete bone-handled fork and a pewter spoon bowl was beneath this plate. Can't want to get back and dig that out better now. Thanks for looking! Here's a link with more information that I had posted, but is buried in the posts : Artifacts For Sale

    That is just insane! I love it. Curious on the preservation you are planning? The fork is two pronged I am guessing . You did very well in the relic department!

    Insanity! The ground was kind to that plate, and I hope you're equally as kind preserving it. If you need tips on iron preservation, t-net member OutdoorAdv is top notch. Brads a great guy and an ace at iron preservation.

    Congrats on a rare and amazing find
