    I'm not sure if "Best of Tnet" is an actual thing or what but I'm seriously honored by that sir. Thank you.

    very nice finds. remarkable. How do you get your find looking so good. I am just starting to md and would like to learn how to clean my stuff. You got your stuff looking really good. Probably the best I seen here on TNET. Can you share with me what you did to get that quality finish.

    Pewter buttons can deteriorate quickly once they are out of the soil they need to be sealed this is one method to do so

    Just wanted to say congratulations again this is one of the most inspiring posts I have read on here in a long time. just goes to show how the proper research and the proper action can pay off big-time. And I gotta say I would rather find that Wayne's Legion button over a George Washington inaugural any day of the week. You can bet that button actually went into battle.

    I have no idea how I missed this post. I have researched a lot of the early pioneers in this area, and of course, Mad Anthony's journeys. The button is an absolutely amazing find. I think I would have wept if I found that. Amazing post, detail, and finds. I can only imagine holding that in my hand, imagining who held that last and where it had gone!
