Over the winter, I was researching a few areas and thought I found a new site. Despite this being about 100 feet from what was a main road in the 60s, this was never detected. If it was, they were bad. This is the results of 3 sites but what really stands out are a colonial shoe buckle, a Kg 11 ( I believe it’s a 1730) and War of 1812 button!! I also found a different button I’ve never seen before. The metal is white with a very different design. Lots of old cooking utensils , some scissors that could date to 1915, a lead ingot And a little heart charm round out the finds. I love this hobby!

Thanks! There was 3-5 holes that were big and not filled in,so it definitely wasn’t a experienced person.
