    Dug the HOLY GRAIL of Eagle Buttons AND a CAPPED BUST!

    Hey Everybody, We had planned a digging marathon the past couple days to try and break our old record for silver coins. I went got out in the field before Buckleboy got there at an old site of ours and about an hour into the hunt I dug a beautiful 1835 Capped Bust Half Dime. Wish I'd had a camera on me to film these finds. Then Buckleboy and Digger Girl got there and we got hunting and dug some finds that he will post about later on. I dug a two piece button that I didn't think much about but we could see that it was an eagle button. I thought it might just be an eagle with a shield on it, or an I or if we were lucky an eagle C. When I got home I cleaned it off and called Buck up to tell him that I could see a V. He started saying "no way. No way! VOLTIGEURS BUTTON!" We couldn't believe it. Turns out that the eagle V button is the rarest of all the eagle buttons (we've only seen 4 or 5 posted on TreasureNet as long as the website has been around). The U.S. Regiment of Voltigeurs active in the Mexican War and only in existence from 1847-48 for one year and a couple months. They were elite riflemen/sharp shooters. Buckleboy was green with envy and I am so excited to find this relic! So here are photos of the sweet Capped and my first (and probably last!) Eagle Voltigeurs button! Happy New Year and Happy Hunting! Shanegalang- The Canefield Bandits!
