    hello my friend, just go out walking in a plantation quarters site and you’d be amazed at what you’ll find just by eyeballing. Lock is made of brass and missing the keyhole cover piece which I’m going to try and find.

    Well if you donít find the brass keyhole cover that was made for that one I do have one laying around thought Iíd give to you. Buckleboy you have been a guy that I admire because you detect a lot and as always searching like myself. My problem is we donít have any plantation quarters that we can just go on and we donít have fields for farming like you do and I guess what Iím trying to say is do you know
    The farmer and get permission to metal detect his feels or youíve been knowing them for so long itís no big deal? Either way I admire your fines when I see you you got something I know you got something and congratulations to you. If you donít find the original brass key cover Iíll send you a picture of one that I have that I found that didnít have a lock but thereís nothing more beautiful then after you do that electrolysis and your lock is black as it can be and thereís that beautiful brass piece in front I love it. If you have I have any pointers that you could share with me I appreciate that so with that I hope you have a good day and Iíll be waiting to see what you find next.

    hello my friend, I just go and ask the farmers. Gotta track em down and ask, and it helps if you know a friend or a friend of a friend. But I’ve never been told no down here when I asked. I didn’t grow up down here just went to farmers’ shops and said hello. Hope this helps buddy.

    What a GREAT post! The effort it takes to get good video, take pictures, put the back story together on the items....fantastic stuff! That was like reading a book, but better! What an amazing thing it would be if everybody’s more productive hunts were so well documented and posted. THIS is the kind of post that genuinely makes people interested in detecting. Huge PROPS on the whole thing BB!

    Hello my friend, I appreciate the offer but please keep it yourself. You dug it! It’s from the reign of Queen Victoria (VR means Victoria Regina). Cheers!

    hello my friend, thank you so much for your considerate and thoughtful reply! This is the reason why I sometimes sit on finds for a few weeks to ensure a proper ID and cleaning, and to do research. I also prefer digging to posting on forums, so when I get a day free I dig more! This sometimes causes a back-up in dirt-covered finds sitting all over our house ��

    but that said, I prefer to make posts like this that get people thinking about the history rather than just the value
