    North Carolina Relvolutionary Button

    I found a North Carolina 3rd Regiment Revolutionary Button, At first when I dug it up, It look like it had a VC,
    I try to look it up on my phone but when I look at the button again, then I realize it was a N not a V, lol.
    The rusty bell is a cool find for me as well and some other stuff..

    Great finds, love the NC button ! I'm thinking they are furniture tacks, I once found the remains of a early 1800s seat from a horse and bugy with tacks like those. Name:  thJJSPI6MV tacks.jpg

    I thought of upholstery tacks also & the site I found one there was colonial era stuff found there also. I suppose the could have been on saddles too.?
