    Two !!! Pewter USA buttons !!

    Today I took some time for myself and headed to a far corner of the hay field accross the road. This spot in the field was my first serious hunt this spring with the ACE 250. I brought home a 1798 LC, a handfull of tombac and dandy buttons. This is the first time back to this spot since that weekend.
    Now I swing a Minelab 705 and was thinking that I could pick up something old. I turned off the iron, cranked up the sens. and picked my way arround.
    Not really sure what to say other than the best button came first at about 10". I knew right away that I had a KEEPER In my watch pocket it went....... About twenty feet away got another broken deep signal....... USA # 2 !!!!!

    I spent another hour and got a small cuff size tonbac then called it a day.

    I will be going back.......

    Yep, I would hunt that place very hard. My better spots had about a dozen Rev pewters... maybe the button finding is just getting started!

    Re: Two !!! Pewter USA buttons !!

    Thank You for all the replies !!
    I am still a little shocked at this... I have been outside doing yard work so I dont sit here and stare at the button's.
    What do I do now? I am not going to do anything more to clean them. These are going to be left "as found" .
    Is there a place where I can get some more info about this button. Do any of you fine folks have anything to add about the story behind this find. Should I do anything to conserve these buttons?

    Thanks again, VPR

    Yes, you absolutely have to seal those. There are a few options with clear urethane and a wipe being my method of choice. Wax I don't like on pewter because you can't heat, and I have never tried the glue mixture method. Do a little research and testing and see what you prefer.

    Here's one I just recently posted that is sealed. The idea is to protect it, but not leave it too glossy... as a dug pewter really shouldn't be.

    PS... A little soap and water with some light brushing wouldn't hurt either if you haven't done that. Better to get as much dirt off as you can before you seal them.
