Hello everyone. I decided to hit a property at the fort today that I haven’t hit in about 6 months. This property has been pounded for the last 35 years. But as you can see there is always relics left. My first 3 relics were the musketballs followed by the buckle. My next find was the cuff sized artillery button with a United States back mark. My next good signal was the pewter 4 hole trouser button. The brass ring I believe is late Victorian. My last find was a faint signal. I didn’t realize what I had until I got home. It appears to be an acorn pendant, charm etc. not sure of its age but it was at the soil level usually associated with the fort level. Thanks for looking and happy hunting to all!

Tesoro compadre, which can find needles, but looking for something with a bigger coil/detects deeper, waterproof salt/fresh user friendly.

Nice recoveries and I like that eagle button.
Whenever I see a eagle button it just makes me think of beauty and strength
