    Thanks Stoney. What a great find!
    The only ones for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the sky.

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS

    Big time Kudos again MM. The best find I can recall seeing in a long time anywhere on the net. I would think that they would be worth more as a collection than parting them out. Make sure you have that place picked clean before you reveal its location. WAY TO GO!!!

    Thanks Gypsyheart. And to think they were just sitting around my house for a couple of months.I wonder how many more of these are stored in peoples' collections that aren't recognized as GWs.

    ONE Washington Inaugural button puts you in "Best Finds" territory. FOUR (plus the early large cents) puts you in some special stratosphere I can only dream about.

    Wow.

    No, let me rephrase that.

    WOW.

    Still not quite right.

    WOW.

    WOW

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS

    Great finds. I am not surprised that you found multiple GW buttons. The were not everyday wear. The were often worn on a cape by inserting them through the fabric then running a ribbon of cloth through all of them, then tying a knot in each end of the cloth ribbon. If the ribbon broke often all of the bottons came off. Resulting in a multiple loss if not found immediately. An attempted robbery would would explain all if the items were fairly close.
    Ah! history! Don,t you love it.

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS

    Just an update.The buttons were inspected by an expert in New York and are certified genuine. She told me that they were not worth as much as an un-dug example(understandably)but she said that many people she contacted to help determine the value wanted to know more details about where and how they were found. She did not tell me over the phone the value but said the paperwork should be here soon. I'll let everyone know as soon as I know. Below are a few more coins recovered from the area (another 1798 large cent, 1816 large cent, a 1809 half-cent found on site and a 180? large cent with a hole thru it found nearby,I posted that one earlier.That's all for now.MM2

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS UPDATED!

    Ok, the appraisal arrived today. They are appraised as follows. The 2 bottom buttons were valued at 500$-700$ each because of the broken shanks.The top right button (63 indentations-intact shank) appraised at 1000$-2000$.And the top left(49 indentations-intact shank) was appraised at 1500$-2200$. Appraised total of 3,500$-$5,600$! What do you think.Candidate for Western+Eastern? I am one very happy camper today!

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS -Appraisal Added

    Congratulations, Mountainman! Definately a magazine article in the making!

    Can I ask a dumb question? What do you mean by indentations?

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS -Appraisal Added

    Not a dumb question at all Mona Lisa.On the outer edge of the button,the total number of dots(I can't think of another word) that circle the button.3 of the buttons have 63 of those dots and are more common and one has 49 which is scarce. The appraiser had more difficulty finding a price for that one.
