    Ok I'm going to double stamp this one funzeees and insist on a do-over. What, can't do that... How about a donation? Can't do that either? A 20 minute head start next time?

    You've been there on some of my better days that we'll never forget, and I know we'll both never forget this one! I don't doubt you'll add to the pile the next time we head back.

    And congrats on the gold.
    Well that's just how my Fall has gone.... dig and dig and dig and always come out on the short end. Things were going pretty bad until I dug 3 keepers in 3 holes that put me back in the game. But after that I went back to digging little pieces of junk and not buttons so got squat. I got smoked but worked like crazy just to get what I did and it could have been much worse.

    On you way there, how about you come by my place and pick me up to?
    What a fantastic relic hunt, your buttons are banner worthy, and I have a feeling that the gold crown has an interesting story to tell.

    Re: more crowns and cannons than I'm used to......

    thanks everyone for your positive feedback,
    some finds deserve praise, and they usually do; although my large militia button didn't receive as much attention as the rev war period one , to me it was a much better find....even though 200 year old plus buttons show up for us on a regular basis, these do not....
    history finds us all and affects us all differently, my heart is with the local scene rather than the international scene, the close to home finds are probably more meaningful to most of us that detect and I'm no different. It's all truly treasure, it's just how we feel about some things more than others, both are rarities and both are good finds, and now that I found two good ones it'll be hard to trump that, but that won't stop me from looking hard for the next one!
    ...if you think I'm a pain in the neck, it's lower, lower,little bit lower, too low, higher, there ya go.....

    Yes, there's no doubt about that one.... especially since I just ID'ed who's button it was! (He was from NY,NY) That's pretty awesome knowing which Rev War Loyalist officer wore it. Now I gotta find me one next hunt! I'm not 1000% on this, but the links I have make it seem pretty darn clear.

    IH give me a shout... I'll fill you in on what I know.
