    Silver Knee Buckle And 1812 Light Artillery Button

    I took my dad to the stamp act cellar hole again, last time he was there he found a 1798-1810 Navy Button, so he had high hopes of finding something else good. I told him to go check along the trail, in case somebody dropped something on it. Right next to the trail he got a signal and dug a beautiful solid silver colonial knee buckle. I was next to the cellar hole, trying to go through the all iron, and got a slightly iffy signal. It ended up being my first military button ever, an 1812 Light Artillery button in amazing condition. So far I have been very lucky at this site, hopefully the luck will last a little bit longer!

    Thanks! I got him into metal detecting some time in late 2014/early 2015 or so. It's a great father son activity, and I always love getting a chance to go to a site with him. I hope to go to this site again tomorrow, as it seems like the quality of relics here is very high compared to my average site. Finding a site that had wealthy military people living there in the 1700's really gives you the chance of finding some very cool stuff.
