    NEW YORK EXCELSIOR CUFF BUTTON, TOASTED FATTY, FLAT BUTTONS...

    Got out on this kick-ass Friday. Started at 7am and was wearing a t-shirt....no coat!! I was actually sweating by 9. My first target was the toasted fatty followed by the buckle frame. Worked my way around the field and found the flat buttons really close together. The one flat button has a lot of gilt left on the back and also has a cool back mark that I've never seen before. This field has been really good to me over the years but the finds are getting slimmer and slimmer. The last target of the day was the New York cuff button. This is the 3rd New York button I've found at this field. The strange thing was, it was found less than a foot from another person's sloppy hole (I understand it's a farm field but you still need to fill your holes properly )

    Of the small union buttons, it's one of my favorite looking. The Maine state seal staff button is my favorite.

    It was definitely a great day to be out swinging, and even better if you can make a few finds. Love that backmark on the flat button. And the NY is nice too. Good hunt!
    Many of you were aware that I've been working on a major book project for close to 3 years, and now it's finally been published. This book, entitled “DISCOVERING VIRGINIA’S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS – AComprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation”, is 400 pagesin length and packed with nearly 1000 color photos of 16th thru 18th centuryartifacts I’ve personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with manyquality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. I alsobelieve it’s the first of its kind in this subject matter area to hit themarket. But don’t be misled by the title as this is a must-have not only forcolonial enthusiasts, but for all novice and veteran relic hunters as well as itcovers a wide range of pertinent topics including research methods, how tosecure permission, reading and searching sites, finding and excavating trashpits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, andmuch more. It basically doubles as both a “how-to” manual as well as a colonialartifact “encyclopedia” covering all major categories to help more preciselyidentify and date your finds. It also contains 40 sidebars scattered throughoutthe book that expand on various topics of interest plus a listing of “SuggestedResources” at the end of most chapters that identifies other publications,websites, technical papers, etc, for additional reading if desired. The bookalso includes 9 appendices to provide supplemental material. It’s alsoprinted in all color on high quality, glossy stock and is contained within aheavy and attractive hardcover. If you're interested in ordering a copy you can click on the PayPal link below. It's cost is $59 + $5 for shipping within the continental US. If you’d like to check out some sample pages from the book, as well as scan the Table of Contents to get a better feel for what the book is about, you can click on the following link: http://colonialartifacts.com/2017/10/book-description/
    Thanks for looking ....
