I cannot believe what nice shape those buttons are in for their age. That must be pretty neutral soil, eh?
It's great to see you guys with your MD setups. Lots of inspiration for a dilettante like me!
Thank you so much for posting, Jim.

I have three of the exact same buttons -- all from one site, only a few feet apart.(NJ) I researched and read about a GW order of silver-plated "vest buttons." Size matches.

Wonderful heart stopping finds! That deep plow really helps but it's becoming a thing of the past. Get it while it's good!
