    Red face Two Civil War Plates - Absolutely my best metal detecting day EVER

    After a stressful week at work and more than a month with the ground covered in snow, I took the day off today for some swing therapy. My first permission was an absolute bust so I door knocked a stately house on the drive back home. The owner said there had been one others detectorist on the property before so my expectations were pretty low. After a few hours, I finally made my way to an undisturbed side of the house. Interestingly, my best luck is always on the side of homes where there has been less landscaping. That抯 when I started making find after find: Union Enlisted-mans belt plate and breastplate found 3.5 feet apart. Coins: wheat cents 1944, 1941, 1920, 1947D, 1938. Mercury dime: 1939. Silver plated bronze 1 centavo coin from M閤ico: 1946. Old lead or bronze bell. The ring is gold plated brass (got my heart pumping at first). I also found what I think is a brass boot heal plate, civil war era cartridge casing and pewter utensil handle. Possibly a brass perforated sword scabbard tip?

    The last time I found a civil war belt plate was in college near Appomattox Courthouse 30 years ago. Never expected to see another. I think I抦 going to surprise the home owners by gifting them to them. It sure reminds me of why I love this hobby. Can抰 wait to return.

    I would have a hard time seperating the two plates.....i would reckon that they were lost together. Very nice finds. Looks like your bell may be a conestago.
