    Virginia Relic Hunt Captures Some Keepers and a Bucket Lister

    Did some CW relic hunting in Virginia this week using a variety of detectors including a GPX, Equinox 800, and a Deus and came away with some great relic finds. In a single hole I found a lead disc which is a possible backing to breast plate, part of a sword belt hanger, a dropped Sharps minie ball, and a purposely flattened Eagle I Coat button (possible poker chip) along with some glass and plate shards including a piece that had the word "Baltimore" on it. the Equinox got me into that hole, probably due to the lead disc, despite terribly hot soil. At another site, I hit my bucket lister, my first US Cavalry bit boss along about a foot down with some other dropped and fired bullets and balls, some cannon friction primers, and other pieces of brass including a flat button found elsewhere in the fields. All in all, it was a great week with that bit boss being the highlight. Thanks for stopping by.

    Good job, looks like DIV soil. I have wondered how the equinox would do. Granted, it's no PI machine but it must still do ok.
    You're not going to find anything cool sitting on the couch!

    If you heat up some hydrogen peroxide on the electric rangetop and drop these in, most of the red will disappear immediately.

    I typically used the Deus to scan through the dirt dug out of pits (like a pinpointer on steroids) and to scan for large iron keepers. I think if I were using the Deus instead of the Equinox I would have also picked up on that lead disk that got me into the hole with the bullet, button, and glass.

    You keep any of the broken glass? I generally toss mine. Too much of it.
