    B & O Railroad Button

    Found this button about 6 inches down using the new CTX3030. I cleaned it with aluminum jelly and it cleaned up nicely. What's great about this find is both my great grandfather and grandfather retired from the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad.

    Thanks. I was surprised how well it cleaned up also. I read Buckleboys post on cleaning and preserving buttons.

    Everyone will make a good find on occasion. The challenge is to find CW relics consistently.

    Huh, you answered a question, or mystery, for that matter. My grandfather had one of these, among others, in an old box. He didn't work for the railroad, but I remember that exact button in the box. We could only look at them, not touch.
    Neat button!!

    I have been trying to do some research to figure the age of the button.

    That is an awesome button! No doubt, the B&O RR is one of the oldest RR's in America, and this is just another great relic rescued! That is beatiful! Congrats!
