1874 US Cadet Buckle Metal Detecting Find
By: Mike C.
I recently went out with my Bounty Hunter Challenger to metal detect for the day. I found an empty lot that belongs to a church that used to have a house on it. I use a bounty hunter challenger so it was just a high tone. When I saw that it was a buckle it took my breath. I ran and got my camera. I got excited when I looked it up and found out it was an 1874 US Cadet buckle from the Indian war. I carried it around for a week showing everyone. I’m planning to make me a belt out of it.
