    Once again the very first signal ends up being the best. First signal was the bull suspender buckle. I've found several suspender buckles at this 1800's site, but this is the coolest! Also found hat I think is a shoe buckle. It would be my first shoe buckle if y'all think this is a shoe buckle. Maybe it was a hair pin? The thimble is tiny barely fits on my 8 yr olds finger.Click image for larger version.

    Made it out on a second hunt, focused on scouting out new sites. Lots of shotgun ends, as typical. Found an old 1800's rail station in the woods from some research I had done, but the site must of had a building up to 40 or 50 years ago as it was full of old beer cans, impossible to get a good target. Then hit two other potential spots, but just a rock Click image for larger version.

    Happy with the stuff from the first hunt at my old site. If anyone has insight on the buckles or thimble it is appreciated.

    Good luck out there!

    The shoe buckle is a Decorated openwork shoe buckle dated ....1730-1760. Looks like you may have a nice early site.

    “This Is My Creed I believe first in God, the same God in which my ancestors believed. I believe in Jesus Christ and that he is my saviour. Second, I believe in the Constitution of the Republic of the United States of America, without interpretation, as it was written and meant to work. I have given my sacred oath “to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against all enemies foreign and domestic.” I intend to fulfill that oath. Third, I believe in the family unit and, in particular, my family unit. I have sworn that I will give my life, if it is required, in defense of God, the Constitution, or my family. Fourth, I believe that any man without principles that he is ready and willing to die for at any given moment is already dead and is of no use or consequence whatsoever.
