Default These are my relic finds from 2018

I had my best year of civil war relic hunting for lead not so much for brass. No plates this year. I did find 600 bullets something I doubt I'll ever do again. I hunt the Gettysburg campaign in Pennsylvania and Maryland. The highlights of my year is the two Gardiner explosive bullets, the two US base bullets & the script C button. Thanks for checking out my finds. Happy hunting & Happy new year
