    Pewter USA Buttons

    I found two pewter USA buttons today in a field near 1/4 mile from the Indian village of Catherine`s Town wiped out by Gen. Sullivan in 1779, i think these buttons are period.
    I also found a dropped three ringer,we don`t see many of these this far north .
    Found a lot of beer cans and iron too.

    They certainly look period to me. Two in the same field. Possibly more there? Phenomenal finds. I'll second Kirk's banner nomination.
