One of My Best Relic Hunting Finds in New York State

Silver Love Charm, ca. 1786

I recovered this fascinating post Revolutionary War relic at the remote and hard-to-get-to location - a cellar hole situated on top of the high hill, while relic hunting in the Taconic Mountains, Upstate New York.

The metal detecting site produced a variety of coins, ranging from the early Large Cents to Indian Head Pennies, and a few interesting relics including a New York State Militia belt buckle found by my metal detecting buddy Tiger Ned. This pleasant silver love charm, the oldest find of all, won the title "the best find" for its personalized and romantic essence.
