    Thank you all! This was one of my most memorable hunts so far. It changed my perspective entirely. When you dig it all, you get a way better idea about what life was like at the site. Life ain't just coins and buttons!

    Did anyone get a chance to look at the two piece button? 13 stars, cannon, water, and a compass or sextant maybe? Maybe something navy related?

    Thanks again everyone! I checked eBay out of curiosity and a similar bottle sold for $255 USD less than a month ago. Although I'm not in it for that reason, it made me feel like I made the big leagues, haha!

    Here's another piece from the group shot that I forgot to get a closeup of originally, maybe you can help identify it. It undoubtedly says "PRESIDENT" (I flipped it over because this side reads/photographs better). I was thinking that it's part of a makeup compact or something. But maybe, just maybe, this was dropped by ol' George himself? Haha, one must dream!

    EDIT: and a pic of the pewter/silver bird ring thing, no idea what this is. Thanks for your help!

    I see a nice bunch of old finds. That U.S. large cent is in good shape and those bottles are really nice finds.

    And thanks to Country Dirt Kid and CRUSADER for the ID of the sickle mower teeth, that's definitely what they are. Thank you!

    Congrats NJ, Super trove there! Re: the spike shaped items, CRUSADER's right, they're sickle bar blade guides. Not from an agricultural sized implement but from a walk behind mower like a Gravely tractor.

    I have to step back here and look at the big picture on this because the type and period diversity of these finds are like layers and layers of primo artifacts. It's like the guy at Sutter's Mill saying "what's this shinny stuff?" You should be very careful to document where and at what depths you find the subsequent artifacts! You may be looking at a trash pit or a natural depression that was selected as a repository for numerous deposits over some time.

    I can't give you guidance on how to calm down or get a good night's sleep but would advise you to listen to some nice calming music for a while. LOL

    Great work and best wishes in good health, Merry Christmas from a gnarled old Christian!

    I don't usually say this, but right now I feel like saying it: God bless you. Thank you.

    Thanks again! Yeah, this site wasn't particularly hot for coins and buttons (well, I still thought it was!), but I bet there are some more there, haven't tried the fields yet. I'll see if I can find you guys some gold, haha. But I'm a bottle digger first, so I'm already more than satisfied with the glass I found, super grateful. If nothing more came out of this site, I wouldn't be upset in the least. The thing is, you KNOW it's there. It's there somewhere, just gotta find it.

    And thanks to Reanm8er for suggesting recording the depths of the artifacts, etc. This place has been moved around quite a bit, the archaeology has definitely been compromised, but it's still a great idea. And, carrying a little notepad and ruler around and taking notes sounds like a lot of fun! It seems like the right thing to do, more professional. This dig has changed the way I think about this hobby, that's for sure.

    Carolina Tom has positively identified the "PRESIDENT" piece, it's a fragment of a suspender clip.
