Missouri Civil War Relics

Hi, All:

Got to spend some time hunting a Civil War camp and skirmish site here in Missouri with my trusty F 75. Bullets were few and far between, but other interesting period and later relics were "saved". Found four IH pennies, only one with a readable date. 1899. Found a wagon reins guide and part of a harmonica reed. Dug a broken shoe toe protector and a nice heavy bass heel plate. Found two Sharps bullets. One dropped and one shot, along with a couple pieces of flat folded lead. Also uncovered two broken eating utensils. One pewter and one silver plated. The plated piece was marked "Lakeside Pat '04". Did a Google search and found a site for Lakeside silver plated flatware that showed a picture of the design called "Holly" that was patented in 1904. It's amazing what you can find researching on the internet.

Thanks for lookin' and keep on diggin'

What coil were you using? I know the F75 is a copper finder. It finds lots of IHs I miss with other detectors.
