    Found my DREAM BUTTON....then found three more!

    I have been detecting for seven years, I've dug a zillion buttons, many old Customs buttons. I have dreamed of digging a North West Mounted Police button since day one. Today it finally happened, and four of them! It's been a while since I had a dug item really stall my brain out and leave me slack jawed haha.

    The NWMP formed in 1873 and existed with that title until 1903. In 1874 287 officers made the famous ride West through these parts. This is the outer fringes of the oldest of the old for my area. Not many officers, and for a relatively short time. The land owner told me he knows exactly where a small group of officers camped, not far from the farm where I found these buttons. Can't wait to check it out.

    I just gently dry brushed them, no water. The image of the Buffalo face is really cool. Thanks for lookingClick image for larger version.

    That's a great day, and should be a banner day! I haven't seen one of those posted in quite a few years.

    Hopefully you get the votes to get your first banner!

    Wow, thanks Iron Patch. A banner vote coming from you means a lot. Anything NWMP is historically significant, and I am beyond thrilled with them. I have three hours tomorrow morning, guess where I'll be?

    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"
