The 80th Regiment of Foot (Royal Edinburgh Volunteers)belt buckle

I was detecting an old rock wall along the back of private property in Orange County N.Y. I was having no luck digging a lot of junk. Then I got a high pitch 83 to 85 on my AT Pro. Started to dig, saw a rectangular piece of metal, thought it was more junk till I turned it over and saw the REV in script on the front. I was so excited I couldn't speak! I wasn't sure what it was exactly but with a couple of calls turned out to be the 80th Regiment of Foot (Royal Edinburgh Volunteers) buckle! I couldn't believe what I have found and the rarity of it (2 or 3 known) and why I was digging it up in New York when they where captured in Yorktown, Virginia.

WOW, that's a great find. And goes to show you that you never know what you'll find, and where we find "stuff".

Thanks for posting!
