    More colonial relics found including nice buckle

    Signals getting harder to find but was still able to bring some 250+ year old relics to the surface. Brought TNet member Murray along with me this time and he found some keepers too. My favorite find was the small two-piece asymmetrical buckle that should date to late 17th-early 18th centuries

    Thanks. This site seems to have been abandoned by the revolution so every hole is most likely something very old. I have not found any state coppers or early large cents here. Not one flat button with back mark either
