    Voltiguere Button!

    Just getting around to posting from my weekend trip to LC. Went down with some great guys and finds were few and far between but worth the trip as I found my first (and probably last) Voltiguere button. This is a spot that I have been hunting a while that had to have been a military outpost of some sort. Finds from mostly 1812-1820's and mostly all Artillery related. but I have dug SC militia and all items from 1790 up through 1850. All in all, 23 military buttons out of this spot.
    The Voltiguere button just adds to the mystery! Thanks for looking.

    That's a great button Russ. That is the hardest letter to find on the eagles shield.
