Daily Detecting

Recent 2 Days Metal Detecting February 2016

Had a little extra time to get out for a solid 2 days of hunting. The weather played nice and finds were plentiful. The items recovered are setting up a pretty high standard for the remainder of the month. I do plan to get out some more in the coming days. But as of now, the rain is setting in for the next 2 days or so. As some of you already know about a few of locations, I spent the majority of the time at one site…the Camp Meeting Grounds. This area has produced some amazing finds over the past 2 years. Since hunting season is over, I now have access to property until November 2016, when hunting season starts again. Below you will see the “Best of It”. Once I get everything cleaned up, I’ll post some more pics. Also, I find this very interesting. The first day I ...

Metal Detecting on Delmarva 2016

For the season being in the middle of January, it’s been pretty mild…yesterday was in the 50’s, clear and calm. That’s not too bad for us here on the Delmarva Peninsula. However, good thing I did get out yesterday because it snowed today. Went and visited one of mine steadily producing sites. I say I hunted for about 3 hours on 300+ acres. I have a pretty good idea where the majority of the activity took place on this farm years ago. I happened to stumble across a section that I haven’t really paid much attention to. Walking back to the Jeep, I hit a nice high tone. My first thought was a can, the signal was loud and clear. Turned out to be an over-stamped Matron Head (1816-1835), its pretty toasted..but the stamp is very clear. Had a couple other interesting ...

Eagle Anchor Button from War of 1812

Delmarva has great hidden artifacts and relics consisting of Colonial Shipwreck Spikes, 69 Caliber Musket Balls, War of 1812 Military Button & President Campaign Token to name a few. My last 3 hour hunt had given up some nice relics at one of my go-to locations. The ground had gave up some early Colonial Musket Balls, and 2 Bronze Shipwreck Spikes to name a few of my finds. But what really had me researching a couple of my finds, is an Eagle Anchor Button dating back to just after the War of 1812, and a possible Campaign token. Yesterday I was lucky enough to have some time free up to do a little treasure and relic hunting. Below is my recorded path taken with my Minelab CTX 3030. One of the best features that I believe is highly overlooked, is the in-unit GPS. This allows you to recor...

Haitian 1st Regiment Phoenix Button War of 1812

First metal detecting hunt in a few months and found some really nice colonial artifacts, and a rare Colonial Haitian 1st Regiment Button from the war of 1812. (See Updated Below) I’ve recently found more time for metal detecting, and I have been making some very interesting recoveries. Earlier this week I found myself in one of my favorite fields just on the outskirts of town. Some of you may remember a few of my posts regarding this particular field. One of the most interesting finds was a Haitian 1st Regiment Button dating right around the War of 1812. I did some research and read that the Haitian Military was in parts of Virginia during the war. However, this button was found on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and there is no information of the Haitian Military being here on the sh...
