    Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.

    Loving this post Smokey and nominated that beauty for a banner. It’s so cool that you were not really expecting to find a CS buckle,which makes it all the sweeter.

    I still cant believe we did that yesterday. Imagine You leaning on the tree coughing up and I stood there pale face frozen in disbelief. Congrats again on a bucket list find. I'm just glad to have pulled it out from its long nap in the dirt. Atleast I touched it LOL I thought last year was AMAZING. Already this year Old silver coins, Gold/ Silver rings, US Plate, Confederate Plate, shipwreck coin.....And were only 13 days into the season.

The saving grace is that it is 10' away from the plowed field, so no fertilizer damage, as far as I know, I'll clean it when I calm down some. It does have scratches, bends and minor damage. I will clean it some tonight. Lots of guessing, but I guess you would have had to have been there to know for sure. Sitting 4' off the side of the old road, near the top of the hill where we found the most stuff.

    I'm trying to get a better picture. Too tired to get it right.Attachment 1536221

    Thank you and Darryl, glad I didn't ralph on you. It came close, I must have hyperventilated and swallowed a ton of air. It had to go somewhere. Anyway, I went on that club dig and found a friendly cat and a buffalo nickle, the nickle is still in the car. I left the cat alone. I already have enough of them. I left early due to the amount of trash in the ground and had to get to the vets before they closed.

    Also, one of us had found a DEEP signal at the farm and I kind of knew about where it was, and didn't want to leave it the rest of the winter, but the ground was too frozen last time we were there so I went back today and found the spot and dug a very, very, very deep piece of melted aluminum, about 4 ounces of aluminum. I did find one of the property markers for the owner, one of the others is buried in briers, can't get a loop in there. He'll have to cut that back some for us to get into it.

    I did dig one additional dropped minie ball, we had walked all around it, repeatedly, and a fired round ball between 45 and 50 caliber, older than the CW, probably not military, who knows? It was way on the other side of the farm. The wind was miserable, so I was there only an hour and a half, but alas, no more crotal bells.

    Who knows whats left in between the signals we missed. Still have fire pits to dig and ect. Every time we think its cleaned up we get a huge surprise. First was my US plate and now a CS plate, WE HAVE MUCH MORE WORK TO DO. LOL The relics have become slim in between but we have new ground to cover. I still think were gonna get a BIG silver surprise somewhere along the border.

    How about a gold surprise? Actually, I never met anyone personally, that is, who found a cache of gold, so I don't think I'd believe it if it happened. I was happy with the Minie and round ball today. Not the aluminum. If anything ever happened and the price of aluminum soared, we would all know where to get some.

    Coilygirl, I really was looking for more of the crotal bells. We had mainly dug the aluminum near the old road.
