    British 60th Regiment of Foot Button

    Hello All,
    This was my first signal of the day. When I flipped it out
    I assumed it was a British button from the American Revolution era, but the condition gave me 2nd thoughts, 8 hours later, I'm home and I've got a positive ID. It's the real deal: A British 60th Royal American Regiment of Foot circa 1774, 24 MM
    http://www.historicalimagebank.com/g..._copy.jpg.html
    I also got a nice civilian pewter, and a thin Seated Dime
    Maybe 1842/1847,
    some other stuff too,
    can't type anymore, I've just dug my best find to date.
    HooWee, Best Digs to You All!

    That 60th regimental button is one reason why I swing on Colonial sites. I want one badly! Great job, Herbie, on recovering a Revolutionary war button.

    And not just a Rev War 60th, a first issue, something not seen near as much as the later patterns. That's a good one.

    Re: British 60th Regiment of Foot Button

    Congratulations on the 60th Regt. That is one button I would love to find because they were stationed at the fort my hometown is named after (Fort Ligonier) during the French & Indian War. Of course they didn't have regimental marked buttons during the French & Indian War. Yours is a 1st pattern, 1768 to 1772, and about as good as they get in dug condition!

    I would hunt that spot hard in case there are more

    I initially said that too, but given the information in the link posted above is from the same source they must date 1768-1774 (or later) and when a more precise time frame is given it's because of the location the button was dug.

    I don't know about that, older equipment and uniforms were used long after they were issued, so "where they were dug" is not doesn't necessarily date them that precisely. This is a B60.a. in Troiani's book, and he states that they many were found at Crown Point and Fort Ticonderoga, both of which were occupied by the British after 1772. Yet he still says this is the 1st Pattern, circa 1768 to 1772, which I take as the years they were manufactured, not necessarily worn.

    In other words, the one on his website, is circa 1774 because that is probably when it was lost, based on the site where it was found. But in his book, he says 1768 to 1772 because that is the date range the 1st pattern was manufactured. Regardless a great find by Will
