    George Washington Inaugural Button just found rarity value of 6 in Alberts book.

    (This is all I can show of the dig at this time) Ok I'm still flying high from the John Adams button I dug last week . They say lighting doesn't strike in the place twice, well it struck today again . I got ANOTHER new permission yesterday and went there today and out popped this beauty! I cant believe I have dug two great pieces of history in the last week. I got it on video too but it will be awhile before I post that don't wont anybody getting any ideas ! I cant believe it............ I finally joined the Washington club. This is another priceless treasure to me . Thanks for looking. Click image for larger version.

    Congrats on scoring the GW sir! That is on almost everyone's bucket list. I know that you are thrilled, and rightfully so. Wow.

    I like it when you find something so good, that a '55 half dime doesn't rate a mention!

    That button would so cool up top, but I'm not sure you can have two banners at once. I guess we will see, huh?

    Again, big congrats and best of luck to you.

    You killed it again!! This button is on pg.396 of Albert's button book. It is listed as WI 20-A. On the GW button website it is known as GWI-20-a. I spoke to the owner of the GW site, and he thinks it could still carry a rarity of R-6. (3-5 known)

    If you are going to enter the GW club, you may as well do it with a holy grail rarity!

    You better play the lotto !

    You are not only a skilled metal detectorist
    But you are also one heck of a lucky man to be in the right place at the right time TWICE.

    I bet you are making many of our members that live in the frozen tundra jealous of
    Your opportunity to still be able to detect.

    Yiu deserve a double thumbs up my friend!
