Out East we go ....
 
Another trip out east I went! Took my yearly drive with my amazing wife and Sonya from Team XP to a small town right outside Hershey Pa...ya the chocolate [emoji515] place . Trip was amazing like always..KGís, Largies and relics were saved again as always and was able to spend the day with some awesome people. Also dug my first ox knob and this mystery camel button which many believe it was for the confederate Army Corp for the civil war that never happened but was a thing...ya strange to me also ..but many articles na out the confederate army buying camels to use in the war. My theory itís a late 1800ís Sportsmanís button. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...2a1f1c9a1.jpeg
Was able to detect when my buddy Brian from Diggers Den to Shawn Sherrill from old Team Whites now Team Garrett. We smoked a few sites and shared many stories. I encourage to get to know people here..engage and travel to meet and save history! You guys and ladies are amazing people in our community...enjoy https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202...7f277fafe2.jpg

Looks like a fun time and allot of fantastic finds. That's an awesome looking spot too. Congrats

A great trip even without the finds, congrats!

Great show. But the LC is sick sick sick :sissyfight:

How deep was the kitten ?

Oh, and how do you get your wife to like detecting ? If you can bottle up that potion you slipped her, you can sell it to the rest of us, and retire as a millionaire !

All those were In Fredericksburg and Jonestown. Plan on being back again next year if I can squeeze it in between my Virginia trip and NY trip. Most likely and then maybe we can hook up

On the Camel button, There were both US and Confederate Camel corps. I am not sure if they used different buttons or not, but your button resembles some shown as Confederate. Very nice find! I would try to find a button expert and have it verified!

Looks like a great hunt with good friends - nothing better than that!

My wife has zero interest in going detecting with me (although she does like getting first pick of any bling I might find).
