Had some time this weekend to check out a new section of park woods I’ve been researching. Site shows up in 1860 map through 1930’s aerial photos.
Was really shocked when the plate popped, it’s a bit crumbly and far from perfect, no Civil War battles In this part of PA. Definitely a bucket lister I never thought I would find at home.
A number of other interesting targets were found.
The Silver thimble has an interesting pattern and marking inside.
The “Coal Eng No…” piece is a bit of a mystery as is the penny size piece with center hole, looks like some kind of worn pattern on this.
The brass piece in the upper right of the photo of large brass targets looks familiar. The lion escutcheon plate was one of the first targets, definitely knew it wasn’t a hunted out site.
