I've been relic hunting for 40 years here in VA. I have found several Confederate plates and numerous Union plates etc. But to me this is my best find of all...2004 Easter Sunday, I found this silver ID shield that belonged to Benjamin Gifford Co. H 121st NY. Vols. Mr. Gifford was awarded the Medal of Honor at the Battle of Sailors Creek VA...I can still remember seeing that shield in the bottom of the hole the day I dug it, like it was yesterday.
