    Good day 2 half cents, LC and buttons

    Got out today for the first time since the snow storm. Had one of those days where the machine just knew where the goodies were. I've hunted this site many times. The one button is quarter size and looks special to me, but I'm no button expert. I have it on what is it,hopefully someone can ID it. Good luck to all. Art

    I would bet many to most hunters won't find 2 half-cents in their career- 2 in a day- simply amazing! Congrats!
