Got out yesterday to an old virgin site of mine I've pounded on and off for years. Used my 6x10 DD to see what I might have missed. Spent several hrs there re-gridding the site & was rewarded with the Flintlock hammer, pc of a shoe buckle and an odd pc that looks like a shell casing, and a Button. The top has threads inside & the bottom has a lead base, no idea what it was.

I moved onto another site & snagged the 3 Indians (1881, 1884, 1889) as well as the 1864 2 Cent pc. Also got the Cloak button, Button back.

Got out yesterday to an old virgin site of mine I've pounded on and off for years. Used my 6x10 DD to see what I might have missed. Spent several hrs there re-gridding the site & was rewarded with the Flintlock hammer, pc of a shoe buckle and an odd pc that looks like a shell casing, and a Button. The top has threads inside & the bottom has a lead base, no idea what it was.

I moved onto another site & snagged the 3 Indians (1881, 1884, 1889) as well as the 1864 2 Cent pc. Also got the Cloak button, Button back.
Awesome digs! Love that big dandy button!

Congrats on the great finds !

I used a 6" EQ2 coil on my E-Trac - non stop for 5 years.
Small coils are fantastic at isolating good targets and hunting in tight spots.
