    Buttons Galore, Scouting New Site

    I know people have found more, but for me 14 is a record button day. Some are actually interesting.

    A new site I had my eye on for some time, maybe a couple of years it always seemed to have something on it, anyway I got on it today (yesterday) and the buttons started popping out everywhere.

    I didn't think I was going to get a coin, but after deciding to quit, sweat poping out on my fore arms I did finally get one lonely crusty copper.

    enough talk, the pics.
    Large crotal bell (broke)
    Top row 5th from left appears to be a ring (not silver or gold)
    2nd pic.
    A NS Militia button, A Tombac, A pewter
    A sportsman button, and a Lion ?

    Maybe you can tell in the first pic. I did polish my knob. Yeah I know original patina, but those aren't worth anything so I cleaned the heck out of that one. Please don't rag on me for that.

    This could be confused with one of mu hunts, looks very similar!

    The Lion Livery Button (circa 1830) can be cleaned in lemon juice, hopefully it has some gilt left.

    I think you've got something there that you're not aware of...in the 2nd pic, the button in the top row to the right sure looks like a French Marines button! That would be an oldie! Can you post a pic of the back?

    From the land of the Bluenose.....man that is a great outing SPR. Nice assortment of buttons. A pewter NS regimental would be a great find!
