Hello All,

I had one heck of a hunt filled with lots of great finds in a new spot—including some outstanding civil war relics, a 150-year-old pistol, a gorgeous trime, and large coppers! I hope you’ll watch the video and enjoy the photos below.


Large cent! 1851!!

Another good hunt. You are good at identifying your finds and obviously good at old finding old coins. I think Perdessoli make a replica of that pistol.
Nice hunt BB

I’ll have to look into acquiring one of the pistols. They’re not that expensive to obtain. Thanks for the kind words, I work hard to ID everything I dig!

Nice going on the latest finds.
The 3 cent is a real crisp one, not much handling.
Looks like it was on/under iron for a good spell.
Keep digging

Yeah it was definitely up against a nail for a long time. Im trying to decide if I want to clean it galvanically or not. Can always wait and decide later. Thanks for the kind words my friend!
