Hey, ROB....Good Job, Nephew -- and NICE 1849 Large Cent, I bet it gave a good strong signal if it was not too deep, and I don't know buttons but like the design on the one you found -- I am glad you were able to get out. I just got back from hunting a school an hour ago and I will post my finds later. GOOD LUCK & Happy Hunting.

Mystery flat pieces

Solved! Thanks to a co- worker and fellow detector and his contacts , the consensus is these are side plates to flintlock rifles !!!

Nice finds. Definitely side plates for rifles, either flintlock or percussion. You found them a 1/4 mile apart. Are they related to the same site?

Definitely, on the same farm property. Just weird because there was never a house in this area, but did find charred wood in the holes and the site was at the bottom of a wide creek bottom . The identified side plate was in the same hole as the 1849 coin. Will be going back soon.
