    Yep. Too bad, that’s a killer find. I can’t recall seeing one posted here before and I’ve never seen one in person either.

    Not really concerned about the banner deal. Not even sure what that's all about to be honest. Just wanted fellow treasure hunters to see really good finds are out there and can be located in places they are least expected. Thanks for all the kind words.

    It is absolutely unbelievable that this is not a banner find. This is one of the rarest state militia (pre-civil war) plates known. In Fact, it's one of the rarest plates.....period!

    Relic hunting here in Virginia for the last 30 years, as well as being and avid collector, this is absolutely one of the top plates known. These are almost never found.

    MSpeiser, this has always been a dream plate for me. About 20 years ago, I could have bought on from a digger at a Civil War show here in Virginia and didn't. It was a personal mistake for me.

    Congratulations! This is certainly one of the top finds I've see here on the net.

    Unreal. Just such a shocker to see this. Whoa. Huge congrats. I guess it's only fair. Every now and then we'll find an OVM in Virginia soil. Turnabout is fair play! Rare . . . but fair!

    I only know of 1 ovm plate that was found in my area and it was in a barn that was torn down about 30 years ago. I research the Ohio civil war database and find old homesites of veterans. I have had pretty good success with finding relics brought home using this manner.
    You're not going to find anything cool sitting on the couch!
