    Here's the crazy part about that. Out of the ground it looked like the typical condition where I'd need a lemon soak to clean it, so that's what I did. But the more it started to come along the dirt and corrosion was gone and the surface was staying green... so I yanked it. Very happy I kept an eye on it because I much prefer it this way, and it's probably just as rare to have a button look like this out of my fields as one having all the plating.

    Here's a pic I snapped the first time I popped it out of the lemon and was finally convinced it was what I was hoping it was.

    This was by far my best hunt of 2017, and definitely one of my best ever having dug a button I've wanted to find for a very long time, and my first marked cross belt plate - a local militia dating to the 1790s. Today was a great day... I just finished a multi day hunt and posted my finds, and got home to see my belt plate which I sent away to have straightened had made it back from Virginia. When I dug it, it was bitter sweet, still mostly sweet, but hard to display with such a nasty bend... but not anymore!

    the repair job really took your find to the next level, you can get a true sense of the piece as it was used and now the display properties have been greatly improved
    your guy did an awesome job!
