    37TH REGIMENT of FOOT

    Hey guys,

    Due to the flooding in SC I was forced to try out some higher ground near Gheenoe78 and I's Rev War honey hole. I've worked the area briefly in the past, but quickly got discouraged by the amount of trash deposited by previous storms. While today was no different, lots of trash did give way to a killer find- Revolutionary War 37th Regiment of Foot button! The button has some edge loss however a faint border is present, 16mm in diameter, heavy lead/pewter composition, with a 37 centered on the front. The reverse has the remnants of a shank and possibly the benchmark of R L?

    A bit of info on the 37th: In April of 1776 they joined in the unsuccessful campaign of Charleston, SC in May and June. By 1777 they had joined Howe's main army for the New York campaign, including Long Island and Fort Washington. The closest match in Troiani's book is example p/q pictured below.

    Nice save on the button!

    You mentioned lower signals ??-02/05's, then there's the 09-11 that have produced interesting results.

    Very nice button Jon! Glad y'all survived this awful weather! Good thing is with all this rain our heavily hunted sites might be worth hitting again! Good luck and congrats on a super nice find.

    Great find John! You'll have a full batallion of British buttons soon! 37th reg buttons don't pop up too often! I think you should share what other reptilian friends you saw back there too cause of the flooding. You won't catch me back there any time soon!!
