I found about a 4" piece at the last DIV. Thanks to your find I now know where mine belonged on there. Mine was the end piece with the notch. Your finds were just awesome. Congrats on some great recoveries.



Proud member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans for all of my Virginia ancestors who served, fought, became POW's and died for a cause they believed in. You are my heroes.

Congratulations!!! The officers buckle is a wonderful find! I'm still waiting for one of those to find its way under my coil. Those are more scarce these days then you think, especially in areas that have been hit hard for the last 40 years.
carved "A"
June 28, 2012 01:49PM
If you look real closely on the cleaned group photo it is visible but I didn't notice it until this morning... I guess its an initial? Anyway, looks like possibly another letter just to the left of the A? Thanks for the comments, I love relics like these more than anything else I find.. I stared at the buckle for a couple hours last night lol!

one more ID question
June 27, 2012 10:36PM
I found this piece just about 5 feet from the belt buckle and initially wrote it off as turn of the century? It has me curious now.. you can see where another character was tore off by the plow just above the 2600.. just curious if its some type of trunk plate or something similar?


Very nice relics!!! (n/t)

Just noticed this stamp in the back....
June 27, 2012 09:15PM
I don't have any of the relic books, can someone tell me what this 507 is for?


its numbered for this...
June 27, 2012 09:31PM
Its a benchmark number. The plate is numbered as well as the keeper(which is hopefully still at the same spot you found the plate). If you find a keeper with "507", you will have found the mate to your sword belt plate. Not all sword belt plates have numbers stamped into them, that goes for keepers as well.
