Thread: Confederate Infantry Button - Cast I!

    Red face Confederate Infantry Button - Cast I!

    It's been almost 6 years since I have dug one of these beauties and I got a GOOD ONE! It rained a little last weekend, so the ground in the field I hunted wasn't that bad at all. This one rang up on my MXT as +50-+60. I also got some video of the recovery, so be sure to check it out.
