What Will You Find?

CSA Buckle

February 28th, 2013 I was detecting an old late 1800's house site. I had been hunting about 2 hours and found a few interesting finds. Then I got a very good signal. It was a 12-40 at 6 inches.

I dug it and couldn't believe my eyes. A CSA rectangle belt buckle. It is very rare and valuable. I've been detecting for about 5 years and this is by far my best find ever. Thanks Minelab!
