    8 Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it?
    9 And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ - Luke 15:8-9

    Complete Shoe Buckle, Coppers and Relics

    Brad Brad Brad.... I thought Abe gets the complete buckles and I get the coppers? Lol.

    About the mystery piece 'Ol Rick mentioned. I was thinking nautical dividers myself, but then thought they were, perhaps, a bit small and dainty.

    Unfortunately I have the pair like Rick pictures on my ship and not at home, but here's a pair I have at home. Click image for larger version.

    I would love to find a complete Georgian buckle like that Brad. Do you think the Deus is superior in iron?

    Thanks a ton Steve I stole Abe's buckle and your coppers. haha That's two buckles from the same site, but not in the same day. As you know, I dug the smaller one back in Dec there. That was the day I got double state coppers, then you one-upped me with a better complete shoe buckle. haha I just included a picture of both those complete buckles because they came from the same site.

    Your picture reminded me of this broken iron compass (or dividers) I dug last fall. Oddly, I found this at the neighbors house of where the complete buckles, state coppers and my new mystery piece came from.

    Congrats on finding ANOTHER complete shoe buckle-Abe's got nothin' on you! It's a shape about the patina. That silvered piece is a real head-scratcher-I haven't a clue. Also great job finding two LCs-I have yet to find my first one.

    Don't worry-I'm sure 2017 will be another great year for you.

    Thanks a ton man! Everyone has an opinion on what machine is better, so I try not to go there. haha I can say this, the Deus works best for me in 95% of the hunting I do. The Deus found a lot that my T2 missed, however the T2 finds stuff with the 5" coil that the Deus misses. That day I dug the KG and cut 8 was all because I took my T2 along to work thick iron with the tiny coil. The Deus is blazing fast, but as you know, it doesn't matter how fast a machine is, if the target is masked by iron, VLF (or any current) technology will not get it. But I think the Deus handles sniffing out fringe targets in the thick iron better than any other machine I've used. I'm really psyched to get the new High Frequency 9x5 elliptical coil this May when it releases. Those high frequencies will nail those low conductors and should rejuvenate my sites with pewters and what not.

    I just pulled out my 3 complete ones for a group shot. Abe's collection puts these to shame though. I do have a few complete frames too, just missing the guts. If you can get on a Georgian house that hasn't been plowed, you stand a good chance.

    Thanks man! It was good to get out. I'm psyched to get back to the buckle site when I have some more time. I've only hit it a couple times and I only had a few hours each time. I know I can work some more stuff out of that place.

    Thanks Tommy! I am lucky to live in an area rich in history. The Civil War touched every inch of land here, so it's tough not to stumble across those relics.

    Thanks Glenn! Somehow Abe missed that buckle... even though he's dug most of the complete buckles on the east coast by now, he still misses one here and there. haha That's funny you haven't dug a LC... straight to the KGs! Weird how stuff like that happens, but has to do with the sites we hunt I suppose. That fat IHPs was overdue and I still have never dug a seated coin... however I have a 7 Spanish silvers and a Capped bust half.
