    My Holy Grail....A Confederate Belt Plate!!

    A very sub-par detecting day turned spectacular in a matter of seconds on Saturday afternoon when I dug a screaming "82" on my F-75. My hunt was into the eighth hour and I had only scored a couple of small pieces of lead. My hunting buddy hadn't done much better so we decided to move to another part of the property. While exiting the field I continued detecting and after just a few steps the detector stopped me in my tracks with the "82". I dug a large plug and lifted out the target. I was confused at the small clump of dirt with 3 little prongs sticking out. I liked the shape and a little green began to show through.....I quickly flipped it over and started gently wiping away the dirt. I was so hoping to see "CSA" looking back but I saw nothing. I flipped it back over to inspect the prongs and now I'm convinced it's a belt plate of some kind. I flip back to the front and got a little more aggressive in rubbing...then a huge "C" appears and is quickly followed by an "S".
    I have never been so excited while detecting (maybe ever). I think in part because I was very tired and had dug trash all day... and also because finding a CS buckle had always been just a dream.--JB

    Likes a comin'! Magnificent find. I like the part where you were getting ready to leave. Sometimes the best stuff is at the edges of the properties and roads, where we park our cars even! Banner all the way. That's a Western Theater plate. Yours is in great shape.
