    5 GEORGE WASHINGTON INAUGURAL BUTTONS IN ONE DAY! BEST HUNT EVER!(updated pics)

    I'm not even sure today was real
    Todd picked me up & we went back down to the 1750's home he found his GW at 2 weeks ago.
    after about an hour of swingin around the yard I decided to go in the area he dug his.about 5 feet away the tree line was and headed in that direction.got a nice signal dug down a large dandy button surfaced.it was plain.stood up swung and another signal.knelt down dug another dandy.flip it over i see the eagle :O'
    stand up same thing.kneel down out pops another.repeat process another! 3 in a 6 inch radius! i was like no freakin way! I figured since they were sold in sets of 4 this was it.


    swinging around yard about 100 feet in middle of yard another 58-60 VDI dig down 4 inches another dandy or cloak button.flip it over i'm like this is not possible 4 GW's in the yard plus todds made 5 from this yard.we spent the morning here and after lunch decided to go try a new cellar hole we researched.
    get to the site was kinda slow going,alot of big iron,todd got a real cool relic and i decided to go on the opposite side of the cellar hole. workin that area i get a nice 60ish VDI at 5 inches.dig down out pops a nice silver washed large dandy.flip it over and no freakin way! i kneeled there in utter amazement!
    i'm staring at my 5th 1789 George Washington inaugural button in one day


    I don't know what it was today?If ole George was lookin down on me or the stars were aligned just right? I'll never know.But,one thing i do know is my very 1st GW a few years ago was my most memorable hunt.this this is a tie with the 2nd best hunt alongside my 1793 chain cent.a day i will never forget!
