    My friend Luke (pacivilwarluke) and his neighbor and childhood friend Mark came down this weekend to do some metal detecting!

  5. What a week in Connecticut, INCREDIBLE FLUTE, 2 complete shoe buckles, and much more!

    I went to Connecticut last week with my family and was able to get out every single day except the day I arrived and left. What a week it was for finds, especially for the summer time in the woods. I only got two ticks the whole time, but was chased around by horse flies and mosquitos non-stop...
  6. 2 short solo hunts and then an epic day of sifting with Brad: a miscellany of finds!

    Luke and I were tired of searching for a new spot and trying to get new permissions and wanted to revisit my go to "Halbach" site before it got dark. I decided to head to the area where I pulled my butt cap from, but I was already exhausted and didn't want to hear more machine gun iron, so I...
  7. Steatite Effigy Bear pipe

    I made an awesome find sifting/metal detecting an old spot on Monday... one I would've never expected. I usually don't find Indian Artifacts, but I had a good feeling this one was something cool. I got some help on Facebook and Instagram and found out it most likely came from a pipe because all...
  8. Finally got out. Antebellum Gold, Dragoon Gold, and more Old Coins and Relics!!!

    Killer hunt at a property I got permission for back in the winter time and finally had the chance to go back today. Spent about 5 hours there.

    Hi all... Found this 1805 half cent a few days ago. I know it has environmental damage or details but I was wondering what grade this would be including E.D. and details. I'm not planning on selling it, but was wondering if it could be given a grade or possibly a variety. Thanks! :thumbsup:

  12. my first "Love Token" from Tuesday

    Was hunting a house my aunt's friend owned in CT, built in 1732. This place was loaded with iron... being that it is a house almost 300 years old. I started off gridding the front yard, only to find clad, but then I got a deeper signal and it was a dandy button. I knew at this point the...
  13. Virgin site, relics galore, fun day!

    After studying old maps, old documents, and articles about the history of an old town near me, me and my buddy went to see if we can find any evidence of a lost homestead. This town is old and historic with not much changed since the early 1900s through now, which is pretty awesome for us...

    Today's hunt was pretty unbelievable. Seth Edwards (Pennsylvania Treasures) came down on the train and we went Civil War relic hunting for the day. It was very warm out to begin our hunt, but as time passed, the weather only got worse. At first, we had a little bit of luck and found a few...
