Thought a collection thread would be cool since weve all spent hours and hours searching for clues from the past. Post up your pics here....Arrowheads, Civil War etc. Whatever you collect!!!
Arrowheads-n-such....

Wow! Nice collections! I'm working on starting an arrowhead one, but I have a nice mineral collection as well...I've had help from my geologist uncle. Favorite is a green fluorite from Europe (forgot the exact location at the moment). Also got a meteorite from Russia (not the latest one haha).

Makes me want to start looking for arrowheads more often. I have a small handful of points I have found, nothing exciting...

Got plenty of sheds, deer jaws, a couple old bottles, an indian scraper of some sort. Working on building the collection, especially the sheds at the moment....


Here is some of the stuff I have right now. It's a bit dark because the overhead light is broken, I'm looking at what to replace it with. Only have the grow lights right now

Civil War stuff:

Not significant but cool...a Civil War minie ball in a section of tree.

This one was crazy...was in Georgia Civil War relic hunting with my uncle. Got a signal on my detector...start digging and noticed the dirt changed to black about 6" down. Out comes an arrowhead! A few flint chips...and then ANOTHER arrowhead. Two in one single hole...and the kicker? A dropped Civil War minie ball that was originally giving the signal. An overlapping camp site hundreds of yrs apart.

More civil war bullets:

Finds from a small skirmish site in Cleveland, TN:

A Civil War bullet carved into a *****:

Civil War bullet mold and a caltrop.

Another nice rare button...a Pennsylvania National Guard staff officer button...

I sold most all my collection of stuff. All I have left are memories and pictures. I said I would never sell anything but when a man gets in a tight spot, sometimes he has to do whats in the best interest of the family.

This is my collection. I just started a couple years ago. I usually just go a couple times a year with a couple of buddies. They have been doing it for years.
