Now that's a really cool dig, Keith...

Wonder what the origin of that piece is. Definitely a "pin" of sorts, but wonder what, and how it relates to the emblem on that buckle?

I find the broken bayonet interesting too.

What's the lower-left-most piece in your pic?

Thanks George!!

Steve the lower left piece is a pretty typical house site and civil war camp find from the 1800s..its a reigns guide for a team of hoses....made of brass threaded ...the reigns ran through it..

Nice!

Took me a minute to see what you were trying to illustrate, but now that I see it's the ammo belt/buckle on the pin, that's pretty cool!

Wonder if it could've held ribbon with a medal?

Whatever it is, it's unique and oozes with U.S. history thumbs down

I like your "normal" stuff, Keith! Good mix of bona fide relics there.
Thanks for passing on some of your knowledge to the rest of us. It is always appreciated.

It does look like the top part of a medal of some sort, but it's hard to image a medal that is related to an ammo belt.

A very interesting find. Congrats.

Keith what is a RA71...I have not hunted since last April as I am publishing a book and because my body can't take 90-100 plus weather, I hunt in the fall through mid spring. I am about to take the impact out and start to use it full time. I have not even scratched the surface with all metal. I just got a 9.5 X 5 to use the company sent me one. I also have the racer and the deus but find the impact for now is all I need. I tend to dig almost everything when relic hunting you just never know and if I get a beep I'm most likely going to dig it. I can't hunt as long as I use to because that will tire me out after about 5 hours but worth the effort. And now I dig a lot of iron..found locks and guns that were rusted and gave a iron grunt.
