That was an amazing hunt indeed

Super finds!!! Artie too! Is this the same site where one of our friend's from SJMDC found the same style button years ago? I may have the email from the Stack's cataloger on what he said about that one, which I believe was the same design.....
"The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

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.
