Found US Calvary Bit Boss
US Calvary Bit Boss
On April 5th, 2008, I was relic hunting in Tennessee on the "Wiley Blair Farm" which was used by both the union and the confederate’s armies. I was metal detecting around a bar-wire fence and I heard a low repeatable signal at 7 inches deep on my White's MXT.
I dug a 10 inch wide hole and down in the hole I saw a small piece of iron, I though, and I reach in to pick it up and I notice the piece was brass and round and had letters US in the middle. When I returned home, I cleaned up the relic, and then I look in my book; "Civil War Artifacts" by Howard R. Crouch and to my surprise it was a beautiful condition "US Cavalry Bit Boss". I’m so proud to have found this civil war relic and to own a White's MXT.
