    Seriously ridiculous button

    Scouted a new spot tonight, and boy it looks like it might be some good ground. Started finding some bullet shells and various bits of high-tone junk. Then I popped this button from less than six inches, saw the gold, I figured I had a WWI or WWII button. I could not believe when the buffalo face emerged and I knew it was a NWMP button.

    I found my first NWMP buttons last year. None of them had any gold gilt on them at all, zero percent. I'm pretty excited that this one is so sweet!Click image for larger version.

    Not far away a Barber dime came up. I didn't find a single Barber last year so it was great to get on board so soon this year.Click image for larger version.

    Then another NWMP button! This one is rough, and is in the same basic condition as the ones I found last year. Click image for larger version.

    This new location is probably 5-6 acres, and I'm excited to have a new place with good possibilities. I was only there for 1.5 hrs tonight. Bring on the weekend!

    Either that will be the center piece or deserve it's own little display case! That is better than a lot of non dug ones would be.


    Your account of the find brought me right back to April 2001 when a similar thing happened to me. You see the condition and think modern, and then it hits ya.

    Yeah, I was sitting there thinking "this can't be, gotta be a repro". It wasn't until I got home and brushed off the back and saw the Scully that I was sure it was real.
