Item Found: Relic

Metal Detector Used: Other (800-0300)


February 1st, 2011

Hello White's,
My name is Sarah, I'm 15 years old. My Dad has been taking me metal detecting for Civil War relics. He goes a lot and finds neat things and I thought I would like to try it. The first time he took me we went to a big cow pasture, he said Civil War soldiers camped there on the hill tops. He let me use his White's XLT detector and told me to detect along a hill top.

I found a Union eagle button in just 12 minutes swinging the detector. I found some bullets too. Another time we went it was really hot, around 100 degrees. He told me to go and detect under a REALLY BIG oak tree in the pasture, it was the only tree there. I did and got a good signal under the tree and dug a whole bunch of Civil War Spencer bullets, they just kept coming out of the ground! My dad could not believe it and started detecting under the tree too, but he didn't find anything else. Here is a picture of my relics so far.

Thank you,
Sarah (VA)
