    Civil war bullet first

    I’ve about gave up looking for stuff and I got a new find on my place I have been detecting on for almost a year and how I missed it or I ignore the signal with my f70 but with my simplex I dug it my first “good” old find with my simplex. 10 miles north of Selma can’t tie it directly to the battle but I live on a road thst union soldiers could have used on the way to Selma.

    Looks like the real deal! Probably more there. Detect it under different conditions, especially a lond rain.

    Definitely a fired CW bullet. A look inside the base might give you a little more info, such as Georgia Teat, Washington Arsenal, etc.
