    I found this antique sash buckle in rurorigins. al Alleghany County, Va. I was on the side of a mountain digging behind large boulders looking for Native American artifacts. I was within a mile of the site of an Indian massacre. i am not totally sure about the metal(s) it was made with. I...
  4. 🔎 UNIDENTIFIED Odd Virginia Confederate Button W. Wildt & Son

    I recovered this button locally at a site that has produced relics dating from 1810 to present. I believe it is a Virginia State Seal button, probably Civil War, but the backmark is very odd. The button is brass, but not too corroded for having been in the ground over 150 years. It has been...
  5. Looking for abandoned mines and gems in north carolin.

    Hi I'm new to the site and to treasure hunting. Me and my buddy were looking around for some abandoned mines to sort through the rocks they cleared out , as well as to look for gems and maybe pan over the summer/spring break when classes don't get in the way. We were primarily looking in north...
  6. Virginia assorted maps hosted online

    Hey all, I just wanted to post a few map sources online that I have found. I still haven't found a lot in the ground, but I still don't know my machine (CTX 3030) well enough and haven't put a lot of time in yet. Sanborn fire insurance maps are great resources to see what towns\cities looked...
  7. Hello from Virginia!

    I'm interested in metal detecting. I live in Woodbridge, VA and have been reading up on the rules and regulations. It seems that MD'ing around me is mostly illegal except on private property (with permission). Is there anyone in my area that metal detects that can help me find some spots to...
  8. Locations for civil war artifacts in Virginia

    Finally I recently started metal detecting. Does anybody know any sites in Virginia and/or Maryland where you can find civil war relics? To be as clear as possible, please give GPS coordinates if you can along with any other additional information. Also, I would like to find some people to go...
  9. Roanoke area help needed

    Anyone out there that lives in the Roanoke Va area that knows any spots or locations to help out? I have several locations that dont produce much or have any leads to any fields. Its hard out here to ask random property owners to look. Any help is appreciated!
  10. XP Deus programs, tips for Virginia relic hunting?

    Hey T'netters- I've used a White's MXT for quite a few years and have had more than my fair amount of success. Last spring, I sprung for the XP Deus and while I've had some good finds (mostly bullets which I love to dig), I just don't think I'm getting the most of it. I mostly hunt areas of...
  11. I'm beggin'

    I am not sure if my request is permissible and if not my apologies and I will withdraw the thread! What I was wanting to know is if anyone owns a copy of " Confederate and Southern Agent Marked Shotguns" by Pritchard and Ashworth, Jr. I have an old southern shotgun I would like to find out...
  12. Projectile point date and type

    I found this point in Surry County Virginia near hog island. I believe it to be from the early archaic but could possibly be late paleo, and it was probably used with an atlatl. It seems to be a quartz rock type and is about 2" long and equally wide. Any other information would be greatly...
  13. Hello!

    Just getting started on my rockhounding adventure...I even ordered a rock tumbler...just an entry level one to see if I should just buy polished rocks instead. :-) Anyway, I am in Nelson County, Virginia up against the Rockfish River and I went searching for treasure this weekend for the first...
  14. New here:-) Anyone in/near Moneta, Virginia or Merritt Island/Cape Canaveral, FL????

    Hello! :-)-I'm visiting my father currently in Moneta, Virginia and I have no idea where to hunt. If anyone would like some company, I'd love to tag along and maybe learn some stuff from locals. Hope to hear back. I also permanently reside in Merritt Island, Florida right next to Cape...
  15. county seal

    I guess this may not be the proper venue, because this is a re-find from today rather than a today's find. Anyhow, I purchased this seal at a tiny flea market in Amherst County, Virginia several years ago. I then proceeded to put it away in a "safe place" so that I could retrieve it when needed...
  16. Looking for a speech made in 1700's

    I had aspeech saved which was made to an assembly in Virginia, I think. But lost it in phone death. I found it in a post somewhere on the net, read it and hurriedly saved it. As I vaguely recall, the speaker was warning the assembly about granting power to the government. One question he posed...
