    Charleston 1850 SLAVE TAG !!! VIDEO ADDED

    WOW-- This has been on my bucket list for a very long time. Just got back from my annual trip to Charleston SC and I'm still on cloud 9!!

    Every year I head to the south with a few buddies and we hunt some plantations with high hopes of a great find. I have seen a couple other slave tags dug but was never the lucky one to pass the coil over it. Well, my time came and I was the one that was lucky enough to swing the coil over it.

    This plantation was a mid 1700 plantation and we did locate the slave cabins or at least the few bricks that were left. The caretaker gave us a tour of the plantation and let us get to diggin. We dug several flat buttons and a few other period targets but the site had been hunted hard over the years. Finally a nice 80 on the Deus and I turned the plug and this just popped out lying face up as seen in the picture below. I almost passed out hahaha! WE had been digging several shotgun shells that were reading in the high 70s and low 80s so I was not expecting much and this totally got caught me off guard!! That feeling is the reason I metal detect! What a rush!!

    A few pictures to show fresh from the ground, a little cleaning and then the final cleaning. The detecting gods were smiling on me that day!!
