    Coolest 1700's Tombac button I ever seen or dug

    After work I had a 1/2 hour till it got dark. I shot down to a old site me and Todd had hit a few times.a crap load of buttons came out of this site.I saved a few more today.This has to be the coolest 1700's tombac button I have ever dug. At 1st I was like oh it's scratched like many tombacs I dig, then I wiped more mud off and was like..Whoa!
    Reminds me of the TALLIO fox cuff links from the same time period.

    thanks! Tombacs didn't have a silver wash.it's the metal content that makes it look silverish

    I think that link is very tentative. Massive speculation, especially as Cru'dad has found one just like it & we had no RW over here.
