Geez, pretty amazing. Who cares about digging for buried coins or gold? Digging for old militaria is way funner. :)

In this very forum, this thread started out with just pics of M1s today:

http://www.usmilitar...showtopic=19412

But towards the end are some of the most intriguing photos of M1s I have ever seen- barn finds and dug examples, which also dispels some common conceptions (for me anyway)- web slings in the ETO, stock color, trigger guard type used in ETO, and serial serial number range

There are also others here at USmilitaria; I'll take a quick look

EDIT
you'll get a lot of dug items in this thread:

I got this Springfield Model 1896 Krag from an engineer I got to know when I was in the army. He claimed the weapon was unearthed on a military construction site in the Philippines. I was fortunate that he thought enough of the weapon to hang onto it. However, he was not a collector so it was not something he was interested in keeping long term and that is why he gave it to me. http://www.usmilitar...tyle_emoticons/default/thumbsup.gif
