    Pre-Superbowl hunt...Militia Eagle, more buttons and colonial!

    This site has continued to produce as you can tell from my last few posts and VMI's recent post. The shear amount of buttons has been amazing. Buttons of all kinds, shapes, sizes, and makes. The field where I dug the Rowley made Confederate I gave me another first. This 1808-1820 State Militia Rifles eagle button. Came out of the ground looking great and I had to immediately text VMI to show him but also to laugh at him for not braving the impending fowl weather.

    Here are the rest of the button finds. Not as many as usual out here but still interesting. This two piece I'm guessing is civilian and the other cone shaped button is a first for me. Couple more nice tombacs as well.

    Dug a nice round ball and this lead cow tag I'm guessing. Mat found one as well that is almost identical but his has an old script number on it. Tell me if I'm wrong on the ID

    Nick very nice button. You may want to get Jon one of those inflatable donuts to sit on since you seem to be kicking butt right before that farmer starts planting all those sweet potatoes in that field

    He's killing me on the Spanish but i'm beating him on the buttons I think. Water always finds its level though so I'm sure he'll dig a bunch of rev war buttons and i'll dig some Spanish. Thanks man

    Big Display? At the rate he's been killing it he's going to buy a Bigger house and dedicate a room for All of it. He's the New King of Potato Fields.
