Heart Shaped Martingale & Militia Sword Hanger ;-)
Quote this message in a reply
I love my new book = RELICS OF THE COASTAL EMPIRE, THE CIVIL WAR YEARS

I'm finding all kinds of stuff in it that I've dug over the past couple of yrs but never knew what it was even though I've known it's relevant to the period ;-)

Although my stuff was dug here in Michigan - you can clearly see it nearly mirrors that of the south shown in the book

Bob, Zeppelin Hobbies in Wayne is a decent little store. Owner's name is Lou. They only deal White's, because their main business is slot cars, model planes, etc., but they have a decent section of detecting books, as well as beach scoops and other supplies. I used to go to Meltzer's, though they have since stopped carrying detecting stuff.

Whomever opens a storefront dealership here in Northern, NJ is going to clean up, as the closest we have to us is The Gold Digger, which I believe is down the shore somewhere. We need someplace around here within driving distance. Problem is...

90% of business is done online nowadays, and with the smaller profit margins on detecting supplies, it would be tough. Still, I, as well as many others, enjoy going into a place, bullshitting a little with others, and buying items in-person, when possible.

Very cool but I think your heart is a bit too small to be a Martingale. A martingale would cover your palm. It was pretty big. About the size of a Breast Plate.

Mark found one out here a while back but it was damaged.

Kick Ass sword hanger though!!

Yes Joe

I've posted them on a few forums but no one's ever identified them specifically.

Now I'm thinking that the heart shaped piece is actually a saddle shield and not a "true" martingale though because as Ron pointed out - it's too small to be a breastplate basically...

Those are some nice digs. Glad you are enjoying that book. I just visited the Heinz history center today. I was drooling over all the glass cases filled with relics down there. That place is awesome.
