Simply amazing. The soldiers on both sides feared the bayonet more than the musket balls back then.

Just splitting a few hairs, counselor. If I recall correctly, the original poster did not request donations; the kind-hearted forumeers volunteered to donate.

I've decided to change this up a bit After talking with Vino we are both going to send you a Go-Find 40 and pinpointer.... so look for a pair of each in the box. One pair courtesy of Vino, the second from Fort Bedford Metal Detectors.

Just be sure to keep posting the finds the boys make with them for all of us to enjoy. Hope they find a few more as interesting as this bayonet! :)

Fort Bedford, Class act all the way. I'm saving for my first MD. Soon as I have enough, you have my order!

Vino, awesome job.

Kindle, great find, thread, and lesson. I'm late in life to the pursuit of treasure, but your class is getting an early start. You will be remembered by many of your current and future students as "that great teacher that used to get us outside for REAL TREASURE HUNTS!"

Congrats on many levels...including the banner find.

correct,and this was not Directed at the OP.

but I feared another member may have decided to spearhead a donation thing
on their own. which still would have been against the rules.
Simply put, no member is allowed to publicly request, manage
or suggest other members donate money or goods to any cause.
even if they themselves don't benefit from it.

This is because there are too many laws these days, & we do not want to cause legal issues for anyone.

If a member is to decide to do so, it must be 100% their idea. :thumbsup:

No I am not going to edit anything at this point.
I just want this thread to be about the Bannered find.
that is all that matters here now that it is on the Banner.

wonder where you've been - WTG on the find
hope all is well with you :thumbsup:

Thanks everyone! We started our Treasure Hunting class last Fall. So far we've found a few flat buttons, an engraved sterling thimble, a VT Copper, Civil War General Service button, and an 1800's pocket knife. We did coin roll hunting in the winter and managed to nearly fill a few old Whitman binders of pennies and nickels. The kids love the activity. It has been great to get to introduce treasure hunting to our students as it is one of my personal passions. On my own time I post as Oxbowbarefoot here on T-Net, but I felt that the school should have it's own profile to share our finds :thumbsup:

Absolutely amazing find KindleFarmer!! Congrats on the banner as well. Here's hoping there's similar history buried at your locale, and we're looking forward to seeing it all! Please PM me if you find the time-like to continue this ongoing discussion offline...

This thread deserves some special award itself! The find is most certainly deserving of the banner, but the generosity of the members is just as incredible. Wtg all! I wondered where you had been too Oxbowbarefoot. Your finds always impressed me when I first joined this forum. It is a very inspiring thing you are doing and I know your students will always revere and respect you.

Thank you. I've been around, but I moved to VT last Fall. I haven't been out as much as I'd like, but now that the weather is nice, I think I might be motivated :laughing7:
