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 record your entire path, and make Find Points along the way. When you’re finished metal detecting, attach the CTX 3030 to your Laptop or Desktop and Minelab’s XChange 2 program will fetch all the data from your machine.

The Bullseye markers are FindPoints stored on my CTX 3030. These were my 2 most significant finds from yesterday’s hunt. Both items were found feet apart from each other, and were the Eagle Anchor Button War of 1812 and the possible Presidential Campaign Token.

As I mentioned above, I found some other really interesting relics as well. Below you will see the Shipwreck spikes, musket balls, other copper/bronze pieces. But one of my favorites is the Lead Sounding Weight which was more than likely used in the Chesapeake Bay.

I’ll be back to the area in the next day or so, and will keep my finds updated. For more Daily Detecting, make sure to check out more of my recent finds.
