Went to a new permission to today for about and hour just to see whats going on there...Its a bed and breakfast. .11acres..The inn was built in 1760s..2nd family since it was built. ..Anyway was just roaming around this field and I got this hit that said it was 6inch down. ..Dug down and it was more like 10...New it was going to be big... this is what I saw.
I could not believe it....I was over the moon
So I slowed down and about 50 feet from there I found this...thought it was the other half but I was wrong...Its the eagle. ..Now I dont know why these would be there...If they are civil war. .I know there was training camps in the area...
Any help with I'd would be great....
I do know there was fighting going on in the revolutionary war...BUT I DONT THINK SO.....Thanks in advance. ..
George. .

That is a Waist Belt Plate, 1832 Pattern, Artillery Enlisted, 1832-1839. See page 165 of Michael O'Donnell's "American Military Belt Plates". These two pieces go together, they are not from separate buckles.

That is one heck of a find!!
Thanks to you Steve, these may have never been together!

I'll give you his cell phone number and you can bash him to his face since he can't defend himself here. God forbid you ever deviate from your self-righteous perfect path in life and you can't defend yourself when somebody digs up your sketchy past.

Why so hostile?. I am not bashing anyone. I thought the guy was cool and a hell of a hunter. I never even would have posted on it again if I thought someone would take it that way, I meant no bad intentions, dammit man. There is no doubt in my mind he found this.

Haha, I'm not implying that he found it I'm just saying he's not here to defend himself
