Mark and I hit a good little hotspot for gold rush buckles. They started right off and we dug a total of six pieces before the night was done. We also got some nice relics and a large cent to top off the night. The large cent was funny-- we could not figure it out at first and we sound like idiots --but oh well!!

What a fun hunt. (making the next video soon!! ) Wink

Great variety of finds Ron! I can see what you mean about not getting bored when you find stuff like that. Those buckles are in fabulous condition!!!

Being that I'm a biased coin shooter, nice catch on the 1832 LC!!!

Fantastic night!
According to the pics in the buckle book that eagle is the rare one with the rounded loops- but I think if they broke those miners would often combine different tongues and wreaths as need might demand,That cast miner wreath is beautiful. I really like the needle and the gold scale weights also.
Congrats

Nice catch Cap-- I hadn't even looked until you mentioned it!! Funny how they were both in the same spot.

Awesome Relics! This is the first time I seen old buckles. Wow, I hope to find one of those one day. Congrats on the recoveries! Thanks for sharing. 

Do you know the approx. time period those were worn?
