My partner Possum scored a very historic site and we drove the 2 hours and it was rough. I from New Orleans I didn’t even know Louisiana had peaks and valleys. Needless to say it was a rough hunt and once the Mississippi River goes down we can cross and be on the paradise spot we’re waiting for. Needless to say I proudly found what I think is a Sharps and a musket ball. Thank you for looking image-2021-04-06-23:26:58-894.jpg

Good to read of you two still scheming!
Recoveries await...

Good idea waiting for the water to fall.
Ol Possum 'd probably swim with his detector in his teeth if you didn't hold him back. L.o.l..

I would’ve said the same but it’s bigger than a Colt. It has a flat bottom as well
Might be a Burnside carbine or a possibly a beat up Merrill carbine. Tough to tell from the angle.

You may also have a Spencer Carbine there. Some type of carbine bullet for sure with the flat base.

Hey Steve after a little research I believe you are right. Thanks for looking IMG_1766.jpg
