    Big congrats on your banner day.

    I would grid that whole field down to the water, even if it took 15 days or more.

    Both of us will be back there soon enough for plenty of swinging. I believe there was at least two early houses at top and one about 70% down the field, so a lot activity and something good could likely turn up anywhere. When I started walking the rows I didn't go all the way to the top or bottom, and as soon as I had a quiet row, and since I was running out of time, I went to try the bottom of the productive rows and dug a few buttons but mostly the bullets. So what we have left is the very top, and 3/4 of the rows, and a flat patch at the bottom lower than the rows. A lot of space really, but how productive the rest of the field is would depend on whether there is another house on the other side. Don't really have a strategy going back other than if we both swing lots I'm sure will dig quite a few targets and at least have a chance given the potential. This is my 3rd great day in that general area and each time there was a good sleeper find that sure woke me up. Now it's beyond clear it's just a great area to dig and you never know what could happen.

    Beautiful looking fields! That button is amazing and most on here dont know how truly rare and special it is. As well as the plate. It's funny one of my most rare finds coin wise I sold a fee years back. Found another the other day (1793 flowimg hair)and here you are finding another one of the buttons you sold years back in I think even better condition. That button should be proudly displayed up on the banner. Maybe give the viewers a little history, value and rarity on the kings button so they can understand how great of a find it is. Well done my friend.

    I did recently see your coin, think on FB, and I guess it's here too. I know I missed a lot on this site this Fall, so today taking a break to let my knee recover a little, I think I'll have a good look through.

    The King's American Regiment is a Loyalist unit raised in America to fight along side the British in the Revolutionary war. This regiment seen a lot of action and was honored as the 4th American Regiment and that's the reason for the change in the design of the buttons going from the crown style to the tudor rose with the 4 in the middle. When I dug my first (crown type) about 17 years ago it was actually the rarer type, and incredibly rare it was. None of the biggest private collectors seemed to have one and the value was quite high. Over the years the first issue turned up plenty, but not the 2nd like I just found. Value is subjective, and obviously I have no intentions to sell, but I'd say maybe $1,000 to the right person. Buying one is tough but not impossible if you're in the loop, but finding one not quite so easy as I have found out first hand. Make that finding a 2nd one!

    To me there is always only one strategy on a field like that especially the first few times until you get the full picture. ie. you grid it all however quiet it is. Only after the first pass can you narrow it down to something smaller, because at this point you have no idea what the shape of the scatter is. This is also where GPS mapping helps a lot.

    What a relief it was! Rev War #12

    Thats one helluva sweet button. Im glad your getting out and i still hope to someday/somewhere get out for a hunt with ya. The belt plate is great too and i see you remembered the one i found recently. Wish i could ever decipher what the marks on mine were but your finds make me want to go back to the spot i found my plate to maybe get a nice military button of any kind. Congrats!
