    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)

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    Great piece of American history and if it ever goes to auction make sure it's at one with relics and early American coins. Most of Cobb's GW collection was apparently purchased by deep pocketed coin collectors. Of course there is a William Pitt Halfpenny which gives a connection.

    Well deserving of the banner.

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    I am truly ashamed to say that I don't comment on a lot of the magnificent finds that get displayed at the top, but I felt I cannot be a lurker on this one. Congratulations to you and your son on one of the most remarkable finds I'm certain I'll see buttonwise. As Buckleboy stated above, these blow the GW Inaugurals out of the water.

    A second congratulations solely to you, for getting your son into this wonderful hobby. I'm really glad you could both participate in a find of such historical significance.

    Also as stated above, I'd be out there where those were dug with a sifter setup and a fine tooth comb! 3 out of however many and that ain't bad, but thats an opportunity to not pass up!!

    Congratulations again on an extremely remarkable recovery!

    WOW Great find!! I think I would be back out there diggin even imaginary beeps..lol..
    If you can remember where the broken one came from go over that hole with a fine tooth detector... maybe you could find the broken bits and complete or mostly complete the third, and possibly find some more of those great buttons.
    Great!!
