    4 GW BUTTONS -location pictures added

    This is my very first post on this forum.These were recovered earlier this year from a wooded hillside in NJ. Didn't even know what they were until someone in another forum was able to id them. 4 early large cents(1798-1803) recovered on the same hill. All eagle and star. Probably my all time best finds.

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS

    Thanks for the comments on the buttons. They were found within 20 feet of each other from 2 to about 6 inches deep. Below are pictures of the large cents found there and nearby and the reverse of one of the buttons(no backmark)Only 2 of the buttons had shanks but after 200 years in the ground,I guess that's not too bad. The third picture is of other buttons found there.One button (not shown) has a london gilt backmark(interesting). Thanks for looking.MM2

    Re: 4 GW BUTTONS

    Great find! Just out of curiosity, what are the GW buttons worth to a collector?
    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.
