    Here is the good one!!!

    I know we all try to find "the big one" well today I found the little one, cuff size Rev War officers button !! I've found examples of this button before but none with condition and remaining gilt like this one. There's tons of good info out there on The Kings American Regiment, I'm just glad we had them around here all that time ago. Now the story... me, Iron Patch and Patriot were out today kicking some dirt around, we looked at a few fields but with crops still in and hunters leases keeping us from detecting much we decided to hit a couple of old sites that were available but our prospects were low, but we kept saying it only takes one good one!
    I was lucky enough to pick up a couple of coppers at one site just as we were leaving and the button was the one and only button I dug at the other nearby old site we ended the day on. Others have dug these buttons on this site and many other detectorists have walked the field hoping for one too ( isn't that right Romeo ) today was my turn I guess. I'll be happy to keep and display this one!
    ps, one of the coppers I dug was an Evasion copper from UK, appartently not common in the colonies, part of the script in the legend reads ADOLPHUS ,lucky twice ! I think I'll get a lottery ticket

    WOW!!! Patch said you found a stunner but that one is amazing! I don't think I've seen another Kings American in such condition!!! That's a banner button if there ever was one!

    I think it was very protected for a long time. Whether that was over 100 years ago years ago, or more recently, something definitely kept that one nice. Gotta love the plow because that patch of iron was very VERY beat. The night we hunted years ago I couldn't even dig a target never mind a good sound in what was bad conditions, such as it was today. Maybe we should forget the new site thing and hit the circuit!

    The midnight hunt when I dug mine, well he got his where I spent all my time before I walked up.. the patch of iron.

    The field has probably been plowed twice since then, and obviously made the difference.

    yep, it's crazy because the way that place is now you could hunt 25 times and get nothing great, or like today find one button and it be the one. It makes it pretty damn hard to decide how's the best way to spend your diggin time... new sites, or old favs. where the targets are very slim but there's still a chance.

    By the way for those who don't know, which is most... that button dates 1776-1781.

    Whooaaaaa... what a find!

    Amazing find... and in excellent condition. Congrats man! Banner!

    Would you consider that better than Iron Patch's?
