    Spanish cuff link button dated 1744 x 2

    I have been detecting for around 15 years and have never found one of these Spanish pillar type buttons until a few weeks ago. The neat thing is that my detecting partner dug one around a year ago on a different site. I was quite envious of his and was ecstatic when I dug mine. My friend dug his one a site in Worcestor County Maryland. I dug mine on a site in Lewes, Delaware (about an hours drive from one another). Anyone else ever find one? The two buttons are slightly different as can be seen with the design of the waves. It is interesting to see they have the same date. Is there a reason for this

    I found a site with info on these:

    The whole site is really cool:

    I found a Rex Carolvs the third button. Its a patriotic ans comm button like yours. I found it in North Carolina close to the cape fear river. Do you happen to know the value of these buttons?

    I have three types, sorry about quality of the one photo with two of them showing. All found in Southern NJ.

    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."
