    As someone said earlier, when your 2nd best find is a capped bust dime, it is a pretty good day. Congrats on a rare, terrific piece of history. I was fortunate to have dug one almost 2 years ago and will probably never see another under my coil.
    Happy New Year.

    Congratulations on those finds!!! I was all about the dime (not knowing the "significance" of the button). One of the reasons I signed up for this site was the history lessons I receive from most of the posters. Thanks you shanegalang and others for your informative posts. Got a lot to learn here.
    Happy New Year & Happy Hunting!!!

    Hey buddy! That’s one find I’m so jealous of. You digging a KMI button just floored me. Seeing you dig a sword I was too shocked to be jealous. This is one fine button that probably neither one of us will ever see dug again. Rare as hens teeth! I nominated it for banner. I see less rare finds make it up top, so I think his one is certainly in the running!

    congrats again and let’s go dig!

    Congrats on an outstanding pair of finds. That "V" button is unreal, and is a very nice War Relic.

    A couple of really nice finds there, and great way to end the year. Good luck in '18 ....

    Just wanted to let everyone know that my new book is doing great and is well on its way to being sold out with about 900 copies selling in only 3 months, and it's unlikely the remaining inventory will last more than a few weeks. There will definitely not be a 2nd printing, so if you have any interest in obtaining a signed copy I would strongly recommend not delaying. For a detailed description of its contents plus some sample page views you can click on the link below. Many thanks to all those who purchased a copy and helped make this project a success.

    You can also check out the following 15 min video book review posted by Beau Ouimette (Aquachigger) which will provide a much more detailed look at the book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX28g69xTM0&t=2s

    Much obliged for the comment sir! I am thoroughly enjoying your book! Buckleboy blessed me with a copy as a Christmas gift, which you included a personal message that made it all the more special to me. The book is phenomenal and I highly recommend each and every relic hunter as well as hobbyist add a copy to their library. Happy New Year! Shanegalang- Canefield Bandits.
