    Thanks! All I did was give it a rinse in water to get the mud off. I'm scared to even hold it though, any ideas how to safely display it? I want it to proudly show it off in the center of a display, or by itself in a display frame, but am scared it would flake. Would it be best to just keep it wrapped in paper towels and in a plastic bag, as it is now?

    Never done this but I was thinking about preserving some of my finds ......my idea ( not actually tried it) was to seal it in a glass case filled with an inert gas . The reason is to keep the oxygen away. It can be a small cube type glass container and a way to fix it so as it cant move.
    Im sure its been done but I never hear of anyone speaking of it.

    I don't believe I've see a better button find on T-Net. Epic find! Banner vote has been cast. Good karma for the wallet you returned years ago. Congrats. I would take that button over a pouch full of coppers.
    got Mass Silver?

    I'm happy just looking at that button! That is in excellent condition for being buried so long! Voted Banner! As for displaying it I think a small case should be enough... as long as the electric fence and guard dogs do their job!
