Great finds! Indiana is not so far from me here in Michigan.

It must be amazing to find civil war relics.

Keep up the great hunting.

All buttons are eagles except far left they are GAR buttons. The large brass buckel on left is a CSA buckel that has had the CSA removed. Was offered $1000 for it in that shape

Nice finds man!!! I cant wait to starting hunting here!!! Are all these finds finds found in old homesite areas? Or fields? I would love to start finding stuff like this! By the way how did you do on silver coins? I only found 4 in 2011 but only went on 15 or so hunts.

All found in fields. Easy pickins. As you can see i try to hunt the oldest sites i can. Not as many coins but they are more quality in my opinion. Found 21 large cents, 42 indians, 7 seated.
