    Most holes I ever dug, colonial silver, buttons and some ?s

    I am exhausted after all the targets I just dug, It was hot and I forgot to bring water. It seems like a camp site or something with so much pewter items. I have to say I am learning an XP Deus and it is an incredible machine, so much more easier to use around all the iron targets. I was so happy to find that one ring that I believe is silver and I hope it is colonial in age like everything else I found. Also found two silver cufflinks but I lost one of them, it has a H engraved on it. I believe the one item is for a gun and some of the other items I have no idea what they are for. The one piece that is in the photo with the ring is really cool, the person I was hunting with said it had something to do with securing a sword, Any input is always appreciated, thanks

    Certainly you weren't bored for the lack of targets.
    Congrats on the frog clip, and the cufflink-heart breaker loosing the other half.
    Though it'll give you a reason to return for another hunt.
    Nice bucket in the lower left picture as well-a keeper for sure.
