Of course I brought my detector along so I could hit one of my favorite mid Florida forts. While the soil there is very sandy the artifacts are usually fairly deep. The yard I was in produced this coat sized infantry button with plenty of gilt remaining. I haven?t checked the back mark yet. My last two finds were the 54 caliber round ball and the brass musical reed which is not a rare find at these forts. Thanks for looking and Happy Hunting!!!

Very nice! The soil has been kind to those artifacts.

The reed is from a concertina or 'squeeze box'. That was the popular portable music instrument of the early 19th C.
