    WAR OF 1812 BUTTON CACHE

    So yesterday I went back to the 1780's house where I have made many discoveries over the past few years. I've pulled large cents, IH's, seated and spanish silver out of this site, including much more.

    I was going over an area in the front lawn where I'm pretty sure I've covered before, and I got a penny-type signal on my XLT. I dug and at 4 or so inches was suprised to see a silver glimmer. I pulled it out gently, and noticed it was an old button. I went inside to clean it off and show the owner...I knew it was something pretty rare!! At this point I'm shaking...rescanned the hole and received another similar signal. Thought holy crap another one!! I had it pinpointed and carefully dug around the signal as to not damage it. I got it out of the plug and to my amazement i see a huge clump of these buttons next to the hole!!!

    There ended up being a total of SIXTEEN of these buttons. Most were attached by a string, like someone carried them around as replacements. This string fell apart upon cleaning. I've lightly brushed these whith soap and water, and about 6 or 7 seem to be in beautiful condition. The others have some green corossion. They are all identical, shank is still on each one.

    They read: REGIMENT OF INFANTRY around the edge. 21 Rt. underneath the eagle.
    Back reads: GILES RICHARDS BOSTON with a small eagle.

    Based on my research, these are definitely from the war of 1812, and this regiment was involved in my area (Lake Champlain).

    Talk about the find of a lifetime....any info on rartiy/history/value would be much appreciated!!

    Now that is great!!!!

    The good news is you can pretty much get all that green off and they will be even more stunning! Just don't start cleaning unless you know what you're doing.
