    REPUBLIC OF TEXAS Star Button

    I haven't posted anything in a while because I have been letting Vol1266X (Quindy) post our finds as the Tennessee Trio, which includes Josh. He asked me to post this button because of its rarity. We went to a new site on Tuesday which Josh had found for us. Josh found two reales and a bunch of flat buttons and a ball button. Quindy found a flat button a ball button and some round balls. Quindy would have found more but he spent a lot of his time filming Josh and his finds. haha I had found a few round balls and a flat button. Toward the end of the hunt, I found a dome button which I thought was an Eagle button. Since I did not have my glasses, I couldn't tell so Josh cleaned it off. He said it had a star in the middle. I thought he was just messing with me since we do that to each other every chance we get. After cleaning it up a little more, it turned out to be a Republic of Texas button. Thanks for looking, Doug Looking at the button with a better magnifying glass I have determined that the button is an Infantry button. There is an I in the middle of the star.

    You 2 clowns are killing me. All 3 of us were excited when we saw the star and knew it had to be a Mississippi or Texas button. The Tennessee Trio had an exceptionally good last six days. I dug the U.S. box plate, Josh dug the 1859 pattern spur, 1842 LC + 2 half Reales, and you scored the "artillery" utility hammer and the Texas button. I wish the VOLS had enjoyed as good a Fall as the Trio has-LOL. I vote BANNER and will formally do so on the system. What are you going to dig next and with the F75 too? HH, Q.

    If you get a depth reading of four inches and you've dug down a foot and widened your hole several times and still get a signal, GIVE UP!

    What a great find!!!!!!!!! I'm like Quindy, that is a banner find in my book. I'm getting me a golf shirt to wear on my next dig. Congrats on a rare find and when I talked to Quindy last night, he told me that you are going to give him that button. That is really nice of you to do that. Your friend, Tennessee digger

    I feel like an American voting on a Roman Eagle ( ). I have no clue how rare it is, although as I have only seen a couple posted in all these years, & with the above posters knowledge; I'm hitting the button.

    Congratulations on an excellent find Doug! That is a Banner button

    I wouldn't be surprised if another one turns up at that house site. Where there is one there is often times another. That has been my experience many times over.
