All parts of guard were disbanded after the second restoration of Burbons.
    Great find! I wish I had a button from the Guard uniform!

    Look for a belt buckle like this:

    This post should have 2 banners - not enough votes I guess, or just too much Napoleonic stuff cluttering up the forum. Nuggy

    Nice coins! Banner vote (even though it's already up on the banner). The big 5 francs coins could be worth $100 each, and there is definitely more value in the other coins.
    1/100 of an American dollar is a cent. It is NOT a penny. The word penny is used by several other countries, such as Great Britain, to denote their smallest denomination. In order to be numismatically correct, you must use the term cent to describe the American coin.

    All thanks for congratulations! Didn't think that in America there are people it will be interesting to them to see my finds which are connected with war of 1812. Now I understand that I was mistaken. On Saturday again went to dig, tomorrow surely I will show new photos
