    George Washington Button

    Had an amazing day hunting at one of my favorite sites with SouthJerseyJim and his Mom, our secret weapon. See Jim's banner post for more pics. There were signals everywhere in the newly plowed field. I hit a high copper signal and out came the 1745 KG looking good. Buttons and more buttons for all with odds and ends including another well worn George ll. Jim held up something and yellled over, GW button and read the button, Long Live The President. It was special seeing the disbelief and excitement on his face as he held up his first of the GW's, we were all high fiveing each other in disbelief. Another signal and one of my wish list buttons arrived. The third GW button of the day with the shank intact, WOW... What a exciting day for all of us... Long Live The President, gotta love it. Art

    I can only imagine digging a Copper in that condition here on Long Island. Also, congrats on a fantastic GW button. That one is on all our wish lists!
