All found in East Tennessee using a Garret Ace 250 wit 12" coil.
Nice points, I have some that a friend gave me that are from the Columbia river area in Oregon . all concidered GEM quality points. neat to see some other types of points.
Thanks for sharing those nice finds, with us, Clint!
And Welcome to the BOC/SOC. Read, post, ask, learn, teach, but most of all ENJOY!
Thanks. The bullets are from the battle Field of
Strawberry plains, and the points are from the Pigeon River in East Tn.
Wow, I just ate at Puelo's Grille on Straw Plain exit, on Sat. evening. They have the best food east of the Smokies, and Canolis to die for!
Always wondered why it was called the Strawberry Plains exit. Guess I know now.
Thanks for the info.
The Battlefield of Strawberry Plains, huh? I never heard of that, but cool finds Clint :smile2:; and from the river too. Metal detecting is a fun hobby - I've thought of doing it myself. Thanks for posting bro!
Very nice work Clint.
Anybody ever tell you that there's gold in that Pigeon River.
Whats that little copper coin there? an old penny perhaps? Just curious.
I bet you have alot of fun doing that! Looks fun anyhow.
It is a 1905 V-nickel. Not Civil war era.
Dug it near a campsite. The war was from 1859-1863.
So some old farmer must have lost it long ago.
I've heard the Cherokees hid gold. But never heard it was in the river?
Great finds, man! Thanks for sharing!
Just saw this thread, sorry for bringing up an old topic.
You say ALL was found with the detector - surely not the indian artifacts? And lead? Didn't think lead was conductive either.
Right, I doubt the detector did the indian artifacts, but if he were not out detecting/digging, they might never have been found, or maybe he wasn't detecting and decided to include them in a very good post.
Yes, lead is a metal................................Metal Detector:wink:
I'm going to be using my borrowed detector more I read the manual and have figured out some of what it does but would rather have one the finds nothing but gold, this one will find gold BB shot size and up. One of the guys I was with yesterday found some old chinese coins one day so thats pretty cool
