    Mr. Dixon, Mayan', (that's the way the word man is pronounced here in Georgia) on the Sword Belt Plate. As said, that is a Great beginning to the new year. Very nice relic indeed. It makes one wonder if this was brought home by a Confetrit' soldier after the war as a souvenir, or if it was worn by a Union Loyalist from N.C. It's fun to just sit and wonder about some of these pieces and how they came about being found where they were. This piece will be a great addition to your collection. Keep at this area. There is bound to be more stuff from where this was found. Best of Luck to you sir and Continued Success to you.

    It's awesome. The only way to find good things anymore is to find an untouched site, and to do that it will be one not in the history books and or think out of the box. Nice job.

    That's just crazy COOL right there mate. That plate is TOP SHELF relic material. Such a beautiful find. You have to work that area with a fine tooth comb, or a backhoe and sifter!!! Amazing recovery. Keep us posted as there has to be some related relics and coins lurking about.

    The plate is just plain awesome. If you look carefully at it, you can see most of the dirt has been brushed off. A fair amount still remains, especially in the corners. If you look at the dirt itself, it appears there was probably quite a bit of ash in the ground (duh, it was near a chimney) and the ash would act as a preservative. The ash tends to neutralize acidic soil and under such conditions, items can come out of the ground in great shape, as in this plate. Under the dirt is a rich, dark green patina. A gorgeous piece and a find a of lifetime for its condition.
