    My first one piece eagle button!

    Found on my test run of my new pro coil on a well hunted area as I remember the signal was one that sounded like trash with my platypus coil. Glad I dug this time! The back mark reads SUPERFINE COLOUR can anyone give me a date range on this one piece convex brass button? Thanks in advance, RL

    Nice one, I dont have my book in front of me but I would guess 1840s

    A little lemon juice of aluminum jelly would probably bring out the gilt nicely.

    Re: My first one piece eagle button!

    The one piece eagle infantry buttons were made from about 1821 to about 1840. Yours looks to have gold plating on it, so I think it might be from the later part of that period.

    Nice Button!
    The oval solder blob holding the shank appears to hide an 'omega' shank,
    shaped like the Greek letter, with feet. pre 1820 would have an 'Alpha' shank,
    basically just a ring, usually displaying a circular blob.
    Congrats on a sweet Early Infantry Button!
    Desire is oft more pleasant than acquisition

    Clean that button very carefully and show us a picture. I believe it to be loaded with Gilt!

    Congratulations. Now go back and dig the rest of them
