    Words like 'Unbelievable' and 'Incredible' aren't up to this task. Sweet Jeebus, that items of this monumental rarity sat underground this long in a particular spot, and then you brought them to the light!!!

    I think, scaling down from 'average antiquity' of European finds, this is on a par with Crusader's recent Henry I penny in terms of local rarity!

    What the heck.. INCREDIBLE!!! I hope you get rich and pretty famous from this!

    I don't mean to negate or minimize anyone's finds here... But it is sad to me that these incredible finds received only 50 or so replies, while a 1916-D dime has accumulated over 160 replies in one week's time.


    I'm bumping this thread up. The finds deserve more.

    I agree Buckles. IMHO, this is arguably the most significant metal detecting find I have ever seen on the forum. If those were my finds, I would DEFINITELY be in contact with the Smithsonian. I would be proud if one of my metal detecting finds was on display in Washington DC.

    Congrats again.

    Agreed, I do not not think the lack of interest is intentional, more along the lines that the buttons are not only an obscure historical item but so rare people are not sure just how to approach it.

    One could liken this find to winning the powerball lottery, three times. That being said I hope others will take a few moments to acknowledge this incredible find.

    I agree....while I would be THRILLED to find a 16D Merc and think it is an awesome find, there were 264,000 of them minted...how many of these Stamp Act buttons were made? For most in this hobby...Coins are King and thus they will get the majority of notice when a key (or especially gold) coin is found.
    I do think it is sad that more people don;t notice and realize the historical significance of a find like these buttons, however the 50 plus replies it has recieved would have been lucky to have been 20 replies a few years ago. Thus while buttons and relics still don;t get the attention the coins do...they are getting more and more interest and attention shown towards them, and deservedly so!!
    So many promising sites to detect...so little time....

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    I agree....I would rather find a historic relic then a key date coin (unless the key date would pay off my house...lol).

    I think it is just a knowledge gap. If you post in the title a 16D Merc then most likely 99% of the people on T-Net will know what it is and what it is worth. Then post the "No Stamp Act 1766" button and that same 99% of the people will not know what that is or how rare it is. Before I started detecting I knew lots of people that collected coins but not one that collected buttons.

    I do feel these buttons are banner worthy but I don't run the site, hell I'm not even a Charter Member so I'm just glad they allow me to nose around in here. Over the last few years this site has given me an education that I could never get elsewhere. I've developed a appreciation of buttons and actually love finding them while hunting. In time the other T-Net members will come around to become fans of the mighty button.

    Again congrats on three amazing buttons or should I say 2 and 1/2.

    Enough value here in this post to put a down payment on a HOUSE.


    This is the best item, value-wise, on the banner right now--hands down.

    Re: "No Stamp Act 1766" Buttons

    We have been back to the site a couple of times, no other "1766" buttons, but we got our first coins there, 1749 Farthing and Halfpence, and my son found a 1787/88 Connecticut copper.
    We decided to give the land owner one of the complete buttons. They are great folks who still operate a small family farm that has been in the family for about 100 years. The value on the buttons is hard to pin down, there really in no significant documentation on them, and there have been none recently sold to use as a benchmark.
    This was our first find of such rare items. It is a strange and wonderful thing to be able to hold a piece of early American history in your hand and realize that this was the beginning of our country's fight for Independence.
    Thanks to all for the kind words and informative posts.
    Kevin
