Dug Confederate Relic Collection from Red House Ford near Chattanooga, TN. This group of relics was dug at the site of a Confederate Picket Camp guarding the “Red House Ford” on Chickamauga Creek. The “Atlanta Arsenal” CSA Belt Plate is in outstanding condition, slick with no ground action at all. Note the glasses, bullets, exploded pistol barrel etc. All were found together at this site by Charlie Harris and are included with the buckle.
A rusted Mauser byf-coded P.08 Luger pistol, still in its wartime holster, unearthed via a metal detector somewhere on the Eastern Front in Russia. It almost certainly remained where its German soldier issuee fell and was covered over by time and the elements. Only its telltale black plastic grips remain in decent shape. Note the loaded magazine removed from the grip.
