First find of the New Year - AVC Button!
January 03, 2014 06:27PM
After nearly 7 years relic hunting I finally found my 1st Confederate button and what a beauty! An AVC loaded w/ gilt /standup shank with Scoville backmark. I never expected this- even more special being from Alabama and on top of that a surface find in a recently plowed field that we have been detecting - as you can imagine the detector was screaming. See the recovery on my youtube video.
