    1800-1850 Dig Site Yields '69 IH, Civil War GS Button and more!

    Hi Everyone,

    Today marks the third week that I've been hunting this old settlement.
    It's a detectorist's dream - no trash, no farm implement pieces and very little influence before or after the 1800-1850 time frame.
    Every target dug is era-specific.

    Here's today finds: (l-r)

    Top: Spoon piece, trigger guard piece, fired lead ball
    Middle: 2 inch point, 2 buckles, unidentified decorative object, lead balls
    Bottom: Copper washer/bead?, 2 flat buttons, 1869 IHP, CW General Service button

    I appreciate any feedback you may have on any of these items. I'm still learning about them.

    Thanks and Happy Hunting,

    Nice group of finds! That item in the second picture is very interesting, but I can't ID it. Hopefully someone here can. I can tell you the eagle button is a CW era General Service button, not a Staff Officers button.

    I recently found a button just like yours and it was easily ID'd with the help of a tnetter with this site, which for some reason won't load for me right now but yea. Nice IH too.
