With as rare as these buttons are, it is well worth your time to work especially hard to try to locate them. Dig every peep, and every piece of iron that could be masking them. If they were deep to begin with, try removing six inches of overburden. It is worth it. If you are finding examples of the Pitt Stamp Act buttons, old copper coins and the likes are no comparison.
    Great advice and I agree completely!!! Hit that area hard and often and take your time and grid it out and cover it from different directions, then keep going back and hit it again and again!!!
    Congrats again on a fantastic rare find!!!
    So many promising sites to detect...so little time....

    I was just getting ready to say pretty much the same thing.


    And especially since you have recovered examples with the shanks still attached. I have little doubt that we are dealing with a discarded jacket here.



    Congratulations on a well-deserved Banner appearance. These buttons blow the GW Inaugurals out of the water. You are dealing with some Very valuable finds here.

    I think this find is so amazing. It should be up on the banner first slot perminately, or for at least for 10 or 20 years.

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    This from the site Blacksheep posted...

    Demont is one of the foremost collectors and appraisers of rare coins and Americana, and president of the North Star chapter of APIC (American Political Items Collectors) for the states of Minnesota, Western Wisconsin, parts of the Dakotas and Iowa. He also owns Historic Americana Investments.

    He has one of the first known American political buttons ever produced. Made in 1766, it is a metal clothing button with a raised profile of William Pitt (the former British prime minister who spoke passionately against taxing Americans without representation) with the words “No Stamp Act” embossed on it.

    “It is very similar to one produced by Paul Revere. It was the spark for the Revolution!” Demont said.”

    Yes, that Revolution, the one that gave us the right of Freedom of Speech that started this whole hobby.

    While Demont is a high-end collector, he insists that this hobby is for everyone. Alan Beam proves Demont’s point.

    I also did a web search and only
    one other item with the No Stamp Act logo on it...it is a tea pot that is now in the SMITHSONIAN.....
    http://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-c...tml?c=y&page=2

    Once again, those buttons are an AWESOME find and as suggested by others...DON'T clean them any further and put and keep them in a safe place, for they could be VERY valuable. Hope you find some more of em when you get back there!!
    So many promising sites to detect...so little time....

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    This is one of those amazing finds that words simply cannot describe. Sure, you could go out and find a gold coin, or a cache of silver in a jar somewhere; and while being a great find, would not carry too much historical value. What you've found is handheld, tangible, proof of the demonstrations and revolt that ultimately lead to the Revolution. It absolutely is from the same fabric that shaped the country into what we all love today. I'm in total agreeance that the historical value of your buttons is overwhelming. Major kudos to you and your son. I'd build a screen and sift wherever those came from so as to not miss a thing.....

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    I'm afraid that after turning this post on first, I have no stomach left to look at anybody else's finds. You have ruined my morning coffee/treasurenet fantasy hour....I guess I'll just go out and dig.

    CONGRATULATIONS TO YOU AND YOUR SON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ABSOLUTELY A STUNNING, SPECIAL, STUPENDOUS, HISTORICAL, MAGICAL FIND(s)
