Officers heartbreak An Officer's heartbreak.
Found by Ransom Hundley, June 3, 2012. I found these items along the Confederate side of the North Anna River, the site of a sizeable fight in May of 1864. The site had been hunted out by the Old Timers using Nautilus Metal Detectors. Thinking there was nothing left, they turned the site over to me and I went there using a Fisher F-75 and found these items and a few others. The Confederate sword pommel handle, the 18k,( marked 18), size four ring, and the Confederate Ring-tail sharps were all dug within a few inches of each other. This ring, according to Rosalie Hundley, it belonged to a woman; though I think it might have belonged to a child. Rosalie points out: childrens rings are much thinner than this one. The full retail value of the gold in this small ring is $181.00. (*The ring has been acid tested to confirm that it is indeed 18k.)
