First Off this is My Friends Find not mine.

A friend of mine went out to a awesome spot on his friends Private property In Northern Ca.. They knew there was some history there and a known 1800's military outpost not too far from the area.

He sent me the Text yesterday with these pics just shortly after making the finds, Talk about the most perfect Eagle Breast Plate Ever!:hello2::hello2:

He also found a monster round ball and a cool lock among many buttons. It is so awesome to see a find like this let alone out of northern Ca. Hope you all can appreciate and enjoy. Super happy for Dan!!:blob7:
