    The British are coming! The British are coming! First Rev War button + CW and more!

    Back to the new colonial site this weekend and it did not disappoint. So far this site has checked off 2 bucket listers for me. The first was the Capped Bust and now it gives me my first Rev War button. VMI dug an almost identical 82nd regiment of foot as the one I dug. Glad what is left of the button is the center thats for sure. Still very ecstatic!

    Was able to dig two infantry CW buttons as well! One Union and one Confederate! This is my first Confederate block I and i'm not sure about the back mark...can't really make anything out.

    I dug a bunch of buttons once again. One is very interesting. At first we thought we might have seen it on the GW inaugural button site. Tell me what y'all think. Theres another button with an eagle on the back, which are cool to find. There are a couple of tiny two piece buttons that I can't get the crud off as well. So who knows what those could be...

    Surprisingly, we haven't really dug many modern coins at all. Nothing younger than IHP's really. So digging two Buffs (one 1937) and a 1944s Merc was a pleasant surprise.

    Last but not least, what I believe to be a British made Brown Bess butt plate. Tell me if I'm wrong. Who knows, might have belonged to the guy from the 82nd Regiment of Foot missing 2 buttons!

    Yes sir. We still haven't really branched out too much from a relatively small area too. Who knows what else we will stumble upon. Thanks for looking.

    There is a British broad arrow symbol under the screw hole on back of butt plate. I have a few pieces with same symbol, including an intact Brown Bess side plate. Congrats on the wonderful finds... Love that 82nd. !
