    VERY RARE EARLY CONNECTICUT ONE PIECE MILITARY BUTTON EAGLE,SHIELD & STARS

    got out today & went back to one of my very 1st cellar holes.worked it slower and dug everything.aside from the few flat buttons I thought my finds of the day were the key & small buckle until i started cleaning the buttons.
    the last button i was cleaning with just water running over it I saw a shield
    what a shock when this design emerged after cleaning.
    backmark is TREBLE GILT with the Connecticut seal in the shield.
    Leddel says it's most likely War of 1812 ish.any other thoughts from you guys?

    That's a rare puppy Dave and we are highly unlikely to ever dig that button in Tennessee. I like all rthe finds. Congrats on a very nice addition to your collection, Quindy.

    Hi HMN That CT button is a good one, Alberts CT 11. I don't have the Tice book but I checked it once and he says Albert underestimated the rarity of it and has only ever seen 2 others. Of course now there's yours and mine I dug mine in CT about 15 years ago and have never seen another dug and the condition of yours is outstanding. Albert also lists it as a blank back so was suprised to see a mark on it. I'll vote banner on it since I think Tice priced it at 1,000.00 several years ago. Here's a shot of the one I dug.....

    Great button. As soon as I seen it I figured I'd probably be reading good news before I finished the thread.

    It's about time you got yourself a safety deposit box, or a big ole safe.
