    Multiple GW Inaugural Buttons...Heraldic Eagle 6-point Estoile variety

    I stopped a a location on my way down to Virginia. Sure glad I stopped at a spot a friend recommended. I dug these four buttons from a pounded field, all within 10' of one another. When I say there were no high signals in this place I mean none...pounded to death. Also there was fill everywhere besides on fertile strip between the two fill spots. All the finds came from there. These buttons showed up as 12-20/21/22, all of them. The other finds for the day was a big ol to bad button, a musketball, and some small buckles.

    I posted them earlier on another post and found out they were GW's. Here were all of my finds.

    The heraldic eagle with 6 point estoile and square punch border is the variety. The best part is they all have their shanks.

    Thanks SwingBeepDig for the spot. I owe you buddy!

    Sorry for the not so good pics. I'm on the road in a hotel room in Virginia.

    Once again, just awesome man. Got to love those surprise IDs. Glad they didn't get thrown in a pile with your other flat buttons. I'm voting again on this thread to be sure it counts. Can't believe there were 4.
