Imagine finding a Civil War carbine underwater...
What is the coolest item you have ever found? Well, this treasure hunter just discovered a complete Civil War Calvary Carbine.
You can actually feel the excitement of this epic discovery.
Sadly, this incredible firearm has taken a beating after the many decades in the deep abyss. It is, however, a cool piece of history that would look great over the fireplace mantle.
With the right equipment and some choice spots to metal detect, maybe you can make such a discovery. You never know until you try.
