    Amazing finds at a hunted out school

    Hey everyone, it has been some time since I have posted last, but need your help on these buttons I just found at a school that has been hammered to death, so I thought anyway. I
    have not cleaned anything as of yet as I am not sure if the buttons are rare or valuable. If anyone can I.D. these, please do!

    I first pulled up and walked to a spot and found this below (first hole).

    Next couple of holes, I pulled this. It still has a little gem in the middle.

    Then I had that gut feeling for some reason that I needed to go over to the other side of the field as there were some very old trees around. Just a hunch, that really paid off

    The first hole I dug and I pull out three of the below buttons, I couldn't believe it!

    Then about ten minutes later, I pull this "GOLD" Button! It certainly has some weight to it.

    Below is the rest that I pulled out in the same area. All within an hour or so.

    Looks like it to me. Awesome stuff. Maybe there was a fort or military campsite there.

    According to this, that 34 button is French military.

    The "85" is probably French too, they look alike.

    And just so you know, in case you dont already know, you can use a wooden toothpick to safely remove dirt. It would be a tragedy to damage any of these great finds.

    When you can, upload some better photos of those last few buttons. Those are probably some good ones too. ANd I cant believe you found all this in one day! Just incredible!

    I think you are right and that it is French Rev. war buttons. When I first found them I figured they were not rev. war buttons, very pleased. Ill tell you, sometimes
    I would take these relics over coins. It is a blast researching the history of relics

    There is certainly more to be found there as these were found cherry picking. I think I will grid it off next time.

    They were on average somewhere around 6" maybe slightly more
