Awesome Civil War Relics With Some Nice First

I have been hunting a nice spot that the bulldozers are destroying to put up the next big complex of progress. It's a race around here to save a few relics before being lost forever to development. I've dug a bunch of bullets and buttons but unfortunately the soil is tough on them and I normally just come away with button backs. I found my first ever hard times token but just like the buttons, it is in rough shape. There is just enough left on it that I can see General Washington on the obverse and New York City Hall on the reverse. I also got a nice brass fuse from a Schenkl Shell or at least that's what I think it's off of.

I have had my eye on a small field site just down the road and I got permission to hunt it at any time. The owner was happy that I asked for permission because she has had to run a few poachers off of there. I started finding a few bullets and then a knapsack hook, so I'm glad they didn't clean the place out. I was working my rows and digging a few relics along with the typical trash when I got another deep bullet signal. As I was digging out my signal, a cubed shaped piece of lead rolled out and I was so excited to see the little dots of a game die coming through. I've always wanted to find one of these and this is a nice one. It's crazy that something so simple and crude can be so cool! I think this is one of my favorite relics I have found in a while. I went on to find another J hook and then got a nice big brass signal down deep. I cut a large and pulled up a nice piece of a spur. This site has been great so far and I look forward to hunting around some more. HH-David

Thanks Greg! I hope you dig some of those first finds soon! I have been enjoying your videos! I know that has to be a lot of work. I enjoy seeing the Civil War relics from that area of the state.

So glad to hear you have been watching the videos. They are a LOT of work but I have a ton of fun making them. How did you like that artillery cufflink? I have another very good video coming out Thursday and you'll like the relics in that one. BUT next week's video is going to be the MACK DADDY. I found the holy grail today. Don't miss that one.
