Metal Detecting Post #80 - More River Finds

Below are some recent Civil War recoveries while metal detecting in a river in the Southeastern United States - a couple of 58 caliber Confederate Gardner's, a 44 caliber pistol bullet, and a couple of musketballs, along with a lead "net sinker", used to keep fishing nets on the bottom of a river. The water keeps them from oxidizing and turning white like the ones that you typically see on display or for sell. I'll have a new video to post at some time in the future.
