    1858 Flying Eagle Cent & Civil War Eagle Cuff Button from Camp!

    I got out yesterday to an organized hunt I planned & it ended up being a bust. A few thing were found but not what was expected, you never know til you look. We wrapped that up about 1:30 & then my buddy Chris & I went scouting for new places. It was nice to ride around the country & explore some places we have never been. We have quite a few sites lined up to research now. At the end of the day we decided to go to a camp that was "hunted out" in hopes of maybe finding a bullet (there maybe 1.5 hours). These pieces are pretty special considering where they were found (can't share more). My first signal was the Civil War eagle cuff button. My best find was the 1858 flying eagle penny (only made 3 years). It's a tough coin to find, this make #3 for me. It was a beautiful day to get out with some good friends & save a little history! Off work tomorrow & going to do it again!Click image for larger version.

    Nice going Josh! Those FE's don't turn up too often, and the eagle cuff is a nice added bonus.

    I mainly coin shoot, but I also enjoy relic hunting and shallow ocean hunting.
    Congratz! I'm so jealous of everyone that finds a Flying Eagle!
