    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....
    Respect the research and permissions of others...Seriously...

    It doesn't happen often, but I have had it a few times in the well drained soils around here.

    I think that part of the reason these fibers survive occasionally is that they were likely made of hemp instead of cotton.
