  1. Best Finds from Nearby Battle Site

    Hey Friends,
    As you know, there is a battle site only a couple miles from my house. The Prussians and the French had a 4-day skirmish back in 1794. The woods cover nearly 1,000 acres so there is...

    Always nice to see some silver! I just noticed you have over 10,000 posts. That's incredible. I heard when you hit 10,000 you get a new car and Del gets your name tattooed on his butt. :rofl:

    Yes, 2 years now. Only 1 year left. I wonder how desperate I'll get trying to detect at all the great spots before I leave?

    That is pretty cool! I wonder if your label is off the first one ever made by the company. Looks like you have number 1. Here's a pic I found online of when number 4 was auctioned.

    Thanks Del, it's a completely different kind of detecting over there. At one point I went over 3 hours with no signals! I began to question my detecting skills and even if my machine was working...

    The battle happened in April 1793. The French were on one hilltop and the Prussians were about 1/2 mile away on a plateau. Hard to say if this was a fired Prussian ball or a dropped French one...
