    A few more Civil war relics.

    I was able to get back to my 1850's site early this morning for an all day hunt. First half of the day was slow, only a couple of trouser buttons, a percussion cap and some lead. The latter half of the day finally started to get a bit more exciting with 4 buttons, more percussion caps and some misc, pieces of flat brass debris and more lead.

    Running my Nox as follows.

    11" coil

    2-tones

    recovery 6

    iron bias 0

    tone break at -9 to +9

    sens 23

    That made for a great day! I love finding GSB's, but that Dragoon button would have been the icing on the cake............. maybe someday here in Az I'll get one, but at this point I'll settle for a 'C'.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
