I found this Brass Door Knob at a Town Hall/ Church  founded 1906. This was buried 9" Deep

Here is an old Saddle buckle. I found this across the river from where a Historical Blacksmih shop once stood.

This was in the same hole as the handle that was retrieved where the old railroad depot once stood. 

This is a relic from my past. As soon as I pulled it from the ground I knew exactly what it was. It is an S hook that old steel bench swing hung on.  This was late 70"s Early 80's

The National Defense Service Medal is awarded to anyone who serves on active duty in the United States military during a wartime period . For service in the Gulf War and War on Terrorism, it is also authorized for members of the Reserves or National Guard ordered to active duty or who are performing "reserve service in good standing" which normally translates as regular attendance at monthly drills and performance in yearly training.[citation needed] The National Defense Service Medal is further authorized to students at the service academies after they are sworn into service, but is not granted to discharged or retired veterans who did not serve in one of the above time periods. The medal is not authorized for members of the inactive reserve component.

This was a surface find in a field. I scanned my detector over it and picked up a hunk of iron. I tossed it back down and caught a glimpse of letters on it. I used electrolysis on it and here is the outcome. Very happy I picked it back up. 

This was dug next to a 1800's Battlefield. I think it may be a bayonet. I have seen othe blunt bayonets which is what I feel this is.
