  1. Louisiana Plantations are full of history

    You got a small brass horse tack buckle, what looks to be a top part of a Spencer carbine casing, and a civil war bullet. Congrats!
  2. πŸ₯‡ BANNER Rattlesnake Bit!

    Yes I do soak them in warm peroxide to remove the dirt. That is what I used on the rattlesnake button as well, although very carefully.
  3. πŸ₯‡ BANNER Rattlesnake Bit!

    I didn't attach the photo as I had stated so here are both buttons after being restored. I used 1/2 elmers and 1/2 water on the RP button to preserve it and a warm mixture of peroxide to remove the crud from the rattlesnake button. I was pleased to see how much gilt was left on the rattlesnake...
  4. πŸ₯‡ BANNER Rattlesnake Bit!

    Thank you for this information! Very informative. There have been some buttons from both sides found at this site. I have attached a photo of the button after water Elmer's glue mixture. No I haven't seen this site before so thank you! It explains these buttons well
  5. πŸ₯‡ BANNER Rattlesnake Bit!

    Yes sir they are. This place was literally untouched and there is some lost history there because I can tell by the volume of stuff we have found that it was a settlement for 40-50 years. Everything from the very late 1600s to the very early 1800s. Even the occasional Williams cleaner bullet...
  6. πŸ₯‡ BANNER Rattlesnake Bit!

    Spending Thanksgiving in the low country this year and have the pleasure of hunting a plantation just north of Charleston. Over the last 5 years we hunt about twice a year and have found everything from a gold thimble to a 3rd regiment SC rev war button along with several colonial gun parts...

    Thank you for the ID. We have found stuff from the early 1700s all the way to modern so that makes sense.
  9. Lowcountry Finds- Rev War

    Twice a year I have the pleasure of hunting a plantation in Charleston, SC and it never disappoints. Last year I found a 3rd regiment South Carolina pewter button. I have hunted this plantation for the past 4 years and found some amazing items. Didn't get to hunt as much this trip due to the...
  10. Did I find a dang civil war bayonet?!?

    Not a bayonet unfortunately but Happy Birthday either way. Dang sure looks alot like the shape of one but it has no socket and the blade is wrong as well.
  11. ***Gotta Dig That Iron***

    Nice bayonet! I dug the same type in a fire pit a couple years ago. Glad the electrolysis connection was corrected because it was pulling rust to your bayonet, lol!
  12. North or West Shropshire Local Militia Button found in Savannah, GA- RARE!!!

    Banner find in my book! Very nice and congrats!
  13. Ohio Volunteer Militia

    Had an incredible find the other evening. Not your standard bit boss from the civil war. This is a Ohio Volunteer Militia bit boss found in middle Tennessee and seems to be a rare variety. Hope you all enjoy and happy hunting! Merry Christmas as well!
  14. 2 CONFEDERATE BLOCK I BUTTONS!!!!!

    Nice buttons. Show a pic of the back, they look like Cast I buttons instead of block I buttons. Either way they are rare to find!
  15. Confederate States Navy find!

    Admins, I have no idea how this ended up posting twice but can one of you guys delete this post or thread since it is the same as the other one with the photos? I can't figure out how that happened as I only posted it once.
  16. Confederate States Navy find!

    Sorry about that, here you all go!
  17. Confederate States Navy find!

    Didn't realize the photos didn't upload so lets try this again! Hunted an old home site last week and found my 2nd Confederate States Navy button. This button was made by Hebbert & co. In London during the civil war. From what I have found through research is that the navy jackets may have been...
  18. Confederate States Navy find!

    Hunted an old home site last week and found my 2nd Confederate States Navy button. This button was made by Hebbert & co. In London during the civil war. From what I have found through research is that the navy jackets may have been issued to troops around Mobile AL before they eventually...
  19. Rev War Find of a Lifetime

    Thanks for the information and yes that is a match. The button measures 24 mm just as the button above letter C. I appreciate the help!
  20. Rev War Find of a Lifetime

    Thanks Steve, the only silver we have found there was a half reale and my wife found that last year. I am very surprised that no other silver has come out of there. I am happy with the coppers I suppose.
