    Eagle Hat Badge, Buckle or What?

    Found this at an old home site this week. It's stamped so I would suspect that it is 21st century but no clue what it is or any approximate age. Description: On each side of the Eagle are the letters U and S. There is a cross in the middle of the eagle's chest and what appears to be 2 pine trees...

    Civil War Relic, Drawer Pull Handle or what?

    I found what looks like a little copper or brass jar near a CW camp and homesite. It has an open fluted neck, a bulbous end with a threaded pattern going around the circumference and it has a small hole at the bottom. I suppose it could be a drawer handle pull due to the hole at the bottom, but...

    I am at an old site last night and among some easily identifiable objects, I came across this item that looks like some kind of cap to a canteen, bottle or something. Anyone have an idea of what this cap went to and an idea of it's age. The bottom of it flips open and you can see threads inside...

    Approx. age and Value of old Purex Bottle

    Found my first old bottle at a site that I have found several 1920's and 30's era items at. Anyone know the approx. date and value (if any) of this Purex bottle? With my luck, it's a really common item, but at least it is in-tact.

    First Hunt since V3i Upgrade

    Stopped by home to pick up the V3i this evening (it's too hot to keep the detector in the truck all day) and ran over to hit a roadside carnival that just left. I had an hour to kill and found these on the High Trash program with the D2 coil. Total for the hour was $10.44.

    Tips for shortening a Tall Man rod

    I recently purchased a used White's detector which has a Tall Man rod. I am 5' 10" and was thinking about simply shortening the rod a few inches.

    Thank you WHITES!

    Glad to hear you got yours back. Just curious as to which center you shipped to? I will be sending mine back and would like an estimate of approximately how long it is taking to get the detector back with the V3i software upgrade.
