    Thanks Abe, you can imagine my surprise when that one came out, what are the chances

    Definitely had a colonial feel to it, still working on an ID

    Excellent finds. Love those early buckles.
    For all of our non SC friends out there, I thought I would give a visual of what is upstate and what the other regions in SC are when we refer to them as such! This is best map I could find quickly. Congrats again on some outstanding hunts.

    That's quite a haul there Jon - WTG! BTW - in your "various bosses and tacks" photo, those 2 items on the left with the trefoil ends are small leather ornaments, and date to the 17th century (see #8 on page 194 in my book for a similar example).
