    We've identified Sandfisherman's button!

    Gary used his microscope and the President of the local historical society, who sponsors the museum where our finds are displayed, brought his extreme close up lens and between them, we were able to make out the lettering. I was then able to look up buttons made by Armitage and found the exact match as shown below. A great and most rewarding day all around.

    The button was made by George Armitage of Philadelphia between 1810 - 1820. Gary, aka "Scary Hands" found a significant 200 year old artifact of that area and era.

    A salute to my good friend and hunting buddy.
