Detecting Moments

Today's adventure included a 1.5 hour drive to a historic 1901 property where I met a delightful older gentleman by the name of Charles.  

I stood on the grand front porch of this beautiful New Orleans style home as Charles slowly opened the large heavy door in response to my knocking.  With a smile on his face he quickly approved my request to detect his property and confessed to being a metal detectorist himself, as well as a Civil War reenactor.  

Charles was a friendly man with a very kind face, and all the while detecting his property he would pop out to talk.  He brought his finds, and was so obviously proud of his Civil War buckle, cannon ball frag, buttons, bullets, and other campsite goodies; thrilled to share them with someone who truly appreciates them. He later brought out his tablet showing aerial photographs he had taken of a nearby Civil War reenactment. We had a lovely time talking as I puttered around his property digging up one roofing nail after another. He placed them in a little jar--why he wanted them I do not know--other than as a memento of some sort; but I couldn't help but think he was as sentimental about detecting as I am.  And when he spoke of the passing of his dear wife I had an overwhelming feeling, during a time of year that must be very difficult for him, our visit had somehow brightened his day.

When it came time to leave, Charles insisted I take a little button from his finds stash that I had shown interest in, adding it to the only good bits I recovered from his yard--a little buckle and a 1930 wheat penny...


As it turns out, in metal detecting, sometimes the best finds are the moments spent with friends, new and old.
