    Congrats Herbie on making the banner.
    Obviously I was wrong.

    Re: 23 Civil War Buttons

    Excuse the ignorance of this question but is the button brass with gilding? Looks like there is only brass on the buttons from the cleaned pics. Just asking for future reference. And thanks again for showing the find off. Can't say I've seen too many dug buttons in a group like this that didn't come off a string.

    Re: 23 Civil War Buttons

    Congrats on making BANNER Herbie. That's a find that is very rare today. I found where a Union Soldier either lost or ditched his jacket. The Eagle buttons were barely under the ground but they were in bad shape and rotten. Your finds were in amazing shape and you did an excellent job of cleaning. HH, Quindy.
    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    Re: 23 Civil War Buttons

    There has to be a full set of buttons there. The uniform would've held them all in one place together until it got covered by river silt. Keep at it. These are a beautiful set of finds.

    Re: 23 Civil War Buttons

    Herbie, congratulations on one of the most awesome relic banner finds this year! Given its location and condition, the restoration and recovery process you performed are second to none! I'd like to thank you for the amazing work you've done for the relic hunting community!

    Re: 23 Civil War Buttons

    It's possible that all of those are from one solider, he could have died right there and the coat has materialized and only buttons remain.

    Just got home from a 6 hour dig to see my buttons up top
    Wouldn't be there without all my Diggin' Pals help !
    Would like to say Thank You to everyone again, I am at my 1 year MD'ing anniversary
    And this banner is a very timely present
    BTW, I heard a very familiar sound from the Etrac today,
    I really knew it was going to be another from the tone,
    Yes, another one recovered
    This ones crust flaked right off without any resistance.
    An even two dozen sounds better than 23.
    Great Digs To All
    DMN, yes all gilt perished from salt exposure, these are the best buttons you'll get on the flats, and I didn't see any string
    Gold coins hold up better
