    Rev. War button and half of a snake buckle

    The week started with finding a bucket list
    Colonial wax seal and ends with two more
    bucket listers -- a rev. War button and
    One half of a rattlesnake buckle!!!
    All from the same general site. On the button
    There is the cannon, eagle, and cannon balls
    With an unreadable word under the cannon.
    The nearest example i could find
    Online had a cannon and flag instead of eagle.
    On the rattlesnake, it looks
    Like the tail half of the snake only, but that
    Something I think I can live with. Maybe one
    Day I'll find the other half. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks. Yeah, a digger could get real spoiled after
    Such a great week, but I'm sure I'll be back to nails
    And shot gun shells in no time flat!
