Hello All,

Some of you may have missed my last three videos where my buddy and I found a foggy field of dreams. Here's links to the videos as well as some photos of the finds. Stunning stuff we pulled near the end of 2022. You'll definitely want to catch my next video coming out on Friday where we hunt a U.S. Cavalry camp in Louisiana. The following week after that, the video is called "Spanish Silver and a Sword Belt Plate." :headbang: I don't post as often here anymore, so please sub on YouTube or follow on Instagram if you'd like to keep up with my finds and lots of other content including relic ID's and history spotlights. There are also dozens and dozens of keepers which don't appear below. Please enjoy.







When I first walked into the field, I dug a piece of a mangled Enfield trigger guard and popped out a solid silver c.1810-1820 fork which weighs almost two ounces of coin silver!

Also got some newer coins including IHP's, V and Shield nickels, and a crusty 1883 Seated Dime:

Ladies' or child-sized pocket watch, and an 1860s Seven Sorrows medallion with memento mori skull, and it's in French!

I also got a nice 1830s one-piece sporting button depicting a running boar:

I EYEBALLED a Civil War U.S. plate where it had washed out of the ground! (You'll have to check out the Part 3 video for that one :) )

Close to dark I dug a rosette. Not sure what it was I carefully wrapped it up so that it could come home safely with me. When I cleaned it I was shocked to see a M1863 "Intertwined U.S.A." Civil War artillery rosette!

Way to go. I kind of like the gesture the fork is making!:laughing7:
Haha yeah it was saying β€œfork you” to me when I woke it up from its dirt nap! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
