Early one piece button with thread still attached
Hey guys, I found this button yesterday on a colonial site i am screening/detecting. I just think it is so cool to see the original fabric still intact after so long in the ground.

Very nice just be glad it wasn't attached to the coat with someone still in it.

Nice design on the front too. You do have to wonder as to how strong thread was back then, especially with the number of colonial buttons found lately....

It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything.
