    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!
    MAJOR BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT:

    I am anticipating that my new book entitled "DISCOVERING VIRGINIA'S COLONIAL ARTIFACTS - A Comprehensive Guide to Recovery, Identification and Preservation" will be available sometime during the early Fall 2017. This hardcover volume, nearly 400 pages in length, will double as both a "how-to" manual as well as a colonial artifact "encyclopedia" to help ID and date your finds. This publication will be a valuable resource not just for the colonial enthusiast, but for all metal detecting hobbyists as it covers topics such as research, permission, how to read and search sites, trash pits, artifact cleaning, preservation, documentation and display, ethics, and much more. It will also contain nearly 1000 color photos of 16th, 17th and 18th century artifacts I have personally recovered over the last 20+ years along with many quality post-colonial finds that randomly turn up at early sites. Updates will be provided as we get closer to the release date.

    ** THE BOOK IS NOW COMPLETE AND IS NOW READY FOR PRINTING. HOPE TO HAVE IT IN MY HANDS BY LATE OCTOBER IF ALL GOES WELL. (Last updated 9-20-17)
