  • Tip of the iceberg

    These are photo's of my dads relic hunting finds. About 99.9% of these were found in VA. This is just a tiny look at some of his stuff. I'll add some more pics later.

    These were found in one CSA winter hut in VA. The head pipe is of Zachary Taylor. It is one of the coolest pipes I have seen. The inkwell is cool too.

    Just two of the many rings he has found. My grandfather used to have multiple coffe cans filled to the top with all kinds of rings. He sold them all for a nice profit.

        A few Civil War relics. Note the original wood handle on the knife.

        One of the many pieces of artillery shells he has found. This piece weighs almost two and a half pounds! Could you imagine hundreds of these screaming above your head, and exploding beside you, throwing these white hot pieces in the air?

          Some of the better coins he has found. He has a Connecticut Copper somewhere.

          These are just a small variety of the hundreds, if not thousands of Civil War bullets he has found.

            Very nice group of relics.
            Love that Draped Bust large cent and the large cent with the two holes which I assume was used for a button.

            Those Williams Cleaner bullets are neat. At least 2 different types there.... I think lolol. Ubiquitous in some areas. Union troops used 'em more and they were a more accurate bullet for 58 cal.
