    Looks like Albert's GI 2 A

    GI 2 Continental Army, General Service, cast pewter, 1-piece with reeded border.

    A. The device, a monogram of the initials U S A. Blank; 23 mm.


    I am sure there are many other varieties than listed in Albert's book.

    Pretty amazing with all these votes isn't it ? Notice how none of the Moderators have commented on this find?? UNBELIEVABLE CONDITION for a dug pewter button, let alone the MOST sought after type of military button from the Rev. War! I don't think it has ANYTHING AT ALL to do with the way I "bashed" the new forum on this site! NOOO....Not at all.......'course that would be unethical, to "blackball", on a site such as this,..... wouldn't it!? Darn shame what has happened on this site. Not very good at keeping my mouth shut. Doesn't seem to work for me. But then again, maybe my Flying Eagle will make it! Seems to be more interest in that kind of stuff as of late. "The" e'STEAMED" Hogge

    amazing button, hogge.
    don't think i've ever had a piece of pewter come out of the ground looking that nice here in ny.
    go easy. she'll get up top. you've got my vote.
    dirty pennies...

    If it was going to be there.....it would have been there already. Besides the 2 goldies, all the rest were there within a day, with very few "nominations". POLITICS man.....POLITICS. Last year this thing would have had 2500 hits by now with 50+ comments by different members! Too many vets have left. The Banner Thing is trivial,....... it's the way it's being done. I'm losing interest fast! There are a few guys,(yourself included), that find some incredibly awesome stuff, ALL THE TIME. That's what I like to look at. Don't get me wrong.......I like helping people out too, and also seeing novices getting lucky with great finds and postings. But It's not the same as it was. Harder to navigate.....etc....etc... I'll still post stuff, (maybe), I just hate the format.

    This is an amazing button!! The condition couldn't be much better. There is no reason it shouldn't be on the banner. Not to take anything away from the other finds on the banner but.....c'mon moderators, really?

    It's possible that there is another reason for this.......Maybe it's because I sell quite a few of my finds, NOT ALL, but some, and with ALL the controversy with Ric Savage, I'm being labeled. Well......It's mine and I'll do what I want with it! Thanks for the comment and support Rev War Hunter! They'd better not patronize me and Banner it now!

    wow what a great Button Hogge , no doubt it has more lead in the pewter than anything else because it has held up well . i can sympathize with your "bannerless find" my friend (my colonial coinspill of last year was denied because of politics as well) but rest assured it is a grand find and worth due recognition from us that know how hard it is just to find one , let alone such an excellent example. monster congrats to you sir.

    I remember that copper spill! Wasn't there a rare Fugio or Machins in there? Or was it determined it wasn't. Cannot remember
