    " Sick days" have their benefits

    Greetings All-
    Felt a bad case of " diggeritis" coming on , so I called in sick at work yesterday and spent most of the day in the woods. Ended up with a nice variety of finds, including a no-date SLQ , IHP, a couple of wheaties, and a few buttons. I was happy to find the silver quarter, and am quite intrigued by one of the buttons that appears to have the Massachusetts state seal on it. Its small ( about 15 mm), and has writing around the rim. You can clearly see the work " Massachusetts", but not much else. It does not have a shank. I've attempted some preliminary research on the internet, but so far can't find anything like it. If any fellow Mass hunters have found a button like this before, I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, and HH.

    I found these in NY, but just over the border from Massachusetts. I believe I came to the conclusion that they were 1820's militia buttons, but they don't have the writing around the edges like yours appears to. Maybe your button is an earlier variety?

    I have a feeling that button is going to turn out to be something special! Your key is awesome! I love those and that one is a nice one. You had a great hunt!

    The button looks like a Massachusetts State Guard button which has a history dating back to it's formation in 1917.

    Very nice hunt. I am a skeleton key fancier, and that's a sweet one you found.

    Nice coins and button too.

    Sometimes I feel sick too, usually it's "rectal glaucoma"... I know this because, I just can't see my butt going to work that day!

    Grats on the finds. I'm definitely intrigued by that button, being from Mass. Last year I found a Mass Copper....I bet it looked a lot like that coming out of the hole. Nice!

    Nice finds/ I seem to get the diggeritis a little bit more frequent prior to the start of the cold weather. I had a bad case last Friday. Proved to be very therapeutic. Congrats on the silver and you button.
