What is up Tnet:hello:

Just got my detector back from being fixed i snapped it in half a few weeks ago..

Got out to a cellar i had already been to but for some reason i had a feeling to go back:icon_scratch:

It was snowy and slushy but i ended up pulling this killer 1775 "Liberty" buckle and gave me the push to hit it hard.It was my first dig

I cannot find this particular buckle anywhere online but im sure its Revolutionary War related..I read something about a Albany regiment but no pics.So a positve ID is needed please..

Felt good to get out i also grabbed a childs toy pewter iron..Imagine that,this is what children played with:laughing7:

Colonial chape and a smoked like cheech and chong Largie..

Good luck out there:hello:

Have no idea what that is but....I like it...I like it alot. I don't know how you guys do that snow hunting, I am spoiled with Fla weather where 50 is too cold for me.With sites like I see you getting into, I would probably get used to it though. Great Hunt.

Awesome finds ! I might not have ever figured out that was a buckle.
Other finds are interesting too. I still get just as excited over the buttons !
Good hunt ! It'll be interesting to see if someone comes up with a definite on the Liberty pc.

Those relics better watch out now that you got your "GUN" back JB. That's a very odd buckle Bud. Never seen one like it. Great post & pics as usual. HH, Q.

I'm waiting on the big snow as well. But I'm def sending it in. I've heard that it totally eliminates all emi. A few of the F75 guys have had theirs done and are blown away at the difference. Run it wide open all the time. So I will def have it done. I have an F75 LTD now too so I will send that in eventually too. There's a couple other things like 4 tones of iron including the ability to mute it out.

Stunning buckle Johnny. :notworthy: Never saw anything like it, might be a "lifetime find"($$$$$). Your persistence digging in that kind of weather has paid off. I'm sure someone can ID it, there are some buckle experts on here. Congrats :hello2:....................Rich

Wow, That buckle is incredible, I love anything with a date on it, that is why I love to find coins lol, but the history behind that buckle is amazing, it looks like a patriotic revolutionary war piece.
