Before the year 2022, my finds had been pretty average, but I’d never really found anything of any significance. This year brought a whole new meaning to the term, “when it rains it pours.” I found my second civil war button Ive ever found today. A pretty decent VMI Cadet button found only a few steps from where my first confederate cavalry button was found. Since there is so much iron around, I decided to try a new tactic on this very trashy house seat. I chose to just dig out the entire artifact layer and carry it in a bucket to a less-iron-covered area, spread the dirt out, and started searching. I found more in the last two weekends than Ive found in a very long time. A wide selection of finds, ranging from oyster shell buttons to silver plated spoons. I’ve really been blessed to be able to hunt these incredible homesteads!
