Item Found: Relic

Location: Mid-West

Metal Detector Used: M-Series (800-0326)


November 1st, 2013

I found the Civil War Brass Knuckles in Knoxville Tennessee in a big open field that was up for sale. It was near Kingston Pike, the main road a foot deep. I have found some Civil War Buttons earlier around where I found the Civil War Brass Knuckle, so I new it had to be something else there. I just started going straight up and down the field for an hour then I hit it, the Brass Knuckles…. The ground was really good dirt. I new that there was Civil War movements in this area of Knoxville, Tennessee. I say to go near the road, where there is junk, however that is where the good finds will be, nobody wants to hunt there. My White's MXT Pro did the job for me!
