    Fugio & Buckle Frame

    Hey all. I've been pretty quiet this year not much in the way of finds but yesterday was the best one so far this year.

    Got out with my good friend Frank to some new sites deep in the woods and nabbed some goodies.

    This is my 3rd Fugio & my 4th copper of the year. Also got a 1904 V in decent shape. The buckle was a screaming signal which sounded like a beer can, glad I dug it!

    SWEET, ROGER! That's a complete hunt right there...Fugio, colonial relic, and a V to boot! How'd Frank make out?
    That buckle must have been just a few inches down...those sound like cans. The deep ones sound better.

    Thanks Drew. It was probably 2-3", blew my ears off like a beer can. Frank found a few buttons and the top part of a hames collar.
