    ‘Hail Columbia’ Button, 1816 Brock Token, 1916 CDN LC


    I found this site by researching an 1872 atlas of my area and after receiving permission from the property manager, I hit the site for 4hrs on Sunday morning. I found a few of the items in the forest on the edge of the field, but it was too dense to effectively swing a coil, the rest I found in the middle of the field close a stone lined well. The US ‘Hail Columbia’ Button was my first find, after that it was coin, coin, coin… well you get the idea!

    All I can find about the ‘Hail Columbia’ button is from the following book that was written in 1862: ‘An Arrangement of Medals and Tokens Struck in Honor of the Presidents of the United States, and of the Presidential Candidates, from the administration of John Adams to that of Abraham Lincoln’. By Alfred H. Satterlee. This description pretty well matches the button I found... “An eagle with shield hanging from its beak, “Hail Columbia” above, struck over a U.S. shield; fine and rare. Although the description above is slightly inaccurate, this button does remind me of the US ‘Flying Eagle Cent’.

    The 1816 Brock Memorial Token was a first for me. I love finding ‘holed’ coins, some of you might not agree, but I think it makes it that much more personal. One-piece buttons were plentiful here; the ‘cross-weave’ button is an early two-piece design, too bad the shank was missing.

    Thanks very much for looking,
    Dave

    Very cool, but I don't think it's a button. (I'll delete the link as soon as you see)

    "Your mystery item is a "Hail Columbia" Eagle motif suspender buckle of the Elisha Steele patent design, dating from the 1850's."

    "HAIL COLUMBIA" ? Help please..


    Thanks very much for this IP, I thought it might've been too big to be a button.
    Here's what I found on the site you referred me to... very interesting!


    "Your mystery item is a "Hail Columbia" Eagle motif suspender buckle of the Elisha Steele patent design, dating from the 1850's.

    Hail Columbia was our country's popular national anthem of the 19th century. The attached image of a freshly dug complete undamaged example is one of my personal recoveries. There are similar designs noted on some of the stamped brass two-piece interlocking "Tongue & Wreath" belt buckles of the period, yet the phrase "Hail Columbia" is not present on the belt buckle versions. The round suspender buckles with the rivet hole below, of Elisha Steele patent design, are noted in several motif variations, including the I.O.O.F. (Odd Fellows), Christian Cross - patent 1846&9 (exact match for the T&W buckle, Jenny Lind, and possibly more. All these are quite rare, with the Hail Columbia Eagle being the most commonly seen of the lot. Some of these round stamped brass Elisha Steele suspender buckles are crimped over a thin back of rolled tinned sheet iron, while others are crimped over a thin rolled sheet brass back (much like two-piece buttons of the period). The examples with tinned sheet irons backs rarely survive well in the ground over time

    Hey Dave, congrats on your first Brock coin (Our Hero of Upper Canada). The other two coins are also in great shape my friend. Hopefully, it's a crop field and you'll have full access in the fall to find more.

    You had a pretty good weekend Dave, pestering me with texts of coin after coin after relic finds while I listened to an ever growing "To Due List".
    Thanks for showing me there's more to life than retirement in the never ending "Due List" it keeps me inspired and dreaming.
    You have too much fun working, and just wait till you retire I'll be caught up by then. ha,ha

    Excellent research and recoveries, that's the way to do it!

    As for holed coins- I like them, and I was excited when I found my first holed silver.
