  1. Very Cool Battle of Waterloo 1815 Flat Button and a Large Cent!

    Greetings all, I've been pretty sick for a couple weeks, but decided to get out for a quick hunt at a couple spots near my house. The first spot is one that I've hit probably over 100 times, but it still gives up stuff. The only notable relic I found there was an unassuming little flat button...
  2. ๐Ÿ”Ž UNIDENTIFIED Very Early Buckle?

    Greetings all, I found this at an old home site that was built sometime in the early 1800s. I can't find another example similar to it online, so I was hoping one of you all may be able to help. Can anyone identify this buckle and put a date range to it? Any help would be appreciated...

    My first ever gold ring pulled from the ground! I did find a wallet full of rings a couple years ago, but those were stashed, so I don't count them :tongue3:. Anyway, this the first time I have ever seen a gold ring in my plug. It was an awesome feeling! It was a choppy signal that was...
  12. The Rarest Confederate Relic I've Ever Found... And I Didn't Have To Dig It!!

    So I've always been just as much of an urban treasure hunter for most of my life. My particular area of interest is military stuff, mostly Civil War weapons and relics. Well, I came across what is hands down the rarest Confederate relic I've ever held in my hands. It's a bullet mold for...

    It's been a rough week, so I decided to get out for a while to clear my head. I went to a site that we've pounded to death in the last few years, but we almost always manage to find at least one three-ringer there. In fact, we call it "One Minie Ball Hill". Today was no exception, my first...

    Myself and a couple buddies got out to a newly discovered Civil War camp this weekend, and managed to do pretty well! The site is massive! We were finding relics here and there in a 300 yard or so stretch. Finds were pretty sparse though, so it may not have been occupied for very long...

    FINALLY Broke My Large Cent Drought! Craig and I got out for a few hours to one of our farm field permissions. There was a couple old houses on this spot at one time. One appears to have been pretty early and the other was from the 1890s or so. In the last month, we have pulled quite a few...
