Item Found: Relic

Location: Illinois

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0284)


December 1st, 2010
     Hello White's,

I went metal detecting on August 30th and I was metal detecting about an hour, and I found a C.S.A. Belt Plate. It was down around 6 inches. I found it with my DFX with the stock 950 coil. It was hitting real good and the sound was high pitched. The reading was $1.00 to .50cent, so I went ahead and dug it.

Boy was I surprised to see it was a C.S.A. belt plate from the Civil War. You never know what you might pull out of the ground, I never dreamed that I would pull one of these out of the ground in Illinois. I have had my DFX for less than a year, and it has been paid off over three times the money I have in it. I want to thank White's for one great machine, thanks!

I live in Quincy Illinois, and found it near the uptown park in Quincy. The C.S.A. belt plate is worth $2,600 or more. Thanks for reading my story and looking at my pictures, good luck on your next hunt!

Adrian
