    Buckle

    Out in the middle of nowhere found some coins and this buckle. The coins were three wheat pennies and large cent and a small cent that is thicker. I can't quite ID them now, going to try and get them cleaned. I can't wait to look some more! The day was awesome just being out but so much better finding things!!

    Cool finds, hopefully you can find a year on that LC. I thought I was the only one that searches middle of nowhere wooded areas. That's proof that anywhere can produce keepers.
