    Hunting for WW2 Relics-Dug a Box Plate

    Yesterday, The Tenn. Trio members discussed the fact that the ground would be frozen for the next 7 days. After lunch, the temp. was 36 deg. so I decided to go to the CW camp overlaid by WW2 Maneuver relics in my last post. I had already started a video about relics of the greatest generation and finds from recent hunts. When I arrived, I parked on the end of the farm where WW2 relics outnumbered CW relics 20:1. My first signal was a big surprise when a U.S. Box plate popped out. A bigger surprise was a square nail in one loop on the back used as a field repair when the rawhide apparently broke. Tenn. Digger said to check if the loops were brass and they are. A friend from Miss. told me that plates with brass loops are associated with Ohio troops (they were there). Ironically, I dug a U.S. belt plate exactly 3 years ago-12-30-2014. Happy New Year & HH, Q.

    Nice job. BTW frozen ground is nothing. Leave the shovel at home and take a pick. We did. It was 4 degrees here Monday night, high of 20 today. No problem, we came, we dug, we got relics.
