    Remote cellar dig; GW button,coppers and relics

    Hi all . It's been awhile since I've posted. Still hunting and finding lots of coppers and buttons but nothing too thrilling. Several years ago I posted my finds from a hunt that yielded a rev war Inimica Tyrannis button. Well several months ago I happened upon a map of the same area dated 1800. The site where the Tyrannis came from was on the map but so were several other sites I hadn't known about. Best thing was all the families who lived in this area were rev war veterans. So using my "secret method" of locating sites I determined where the site should be and as always these old maps are remarkably accurate.As is the case of the sites on this mountainside they are rectangular stacked stones with no dug out cellarhole. When I reached the site I liked the look of it ; besides a few shotgun shells no evidence of having been detected or messed with. So I did the usual search about 20 feet around the perimeter and to my amazement not a single sound not even any iron to speak of. Then I wondered if some hunter/detectorist had beaten me to the punch. So after a 3/4 mile uphill climb I was going to check out the entire site and about 25 feet from one corner of the foundation I found a pewter button. Then I began getting targets. Odd thing was all the finds from this site came from an area roughly 20' wide and 100' long. I found nothing outside this area even though it was easy to detect. Anyway it was a great old site probably abandoned by 1820 and it coughed up my first GW button in great shape , a neat silvered button and some nice Connecticut coppers. All in all a great hunt. My partner Max was however less than impressed. Now if I can only find that USA button.......

    Yeah we are a bit spoiled up here. The issue is I find all unhit sites are way off the beaten track. The site in my post was just in the middle of a mountainside , no tote roads , no walls , no nothing . Without finding the map I would not have walked that part of the mountainside ; just too inaccessible.Virgin sites are like hens teeth. So when you find one you gotta enjoy it. But you are right it is a fun region to hunt. MAGA

    Incredible hunt! Congrats on the coppers and GW button. I bet your dog is no longer white when you exit the woods, at least itís easy to see ticks on a white dog (I have a white dog as well, but have never brought him into the woods to detect. I would spend more time tracking him down than detecting...). Congrats!
