    Return To Stamp Act Button Site: Dad Finds Beautiful 1795-1810 Navy Button!

    I told my dad about the Stamp Act button I found, and he said he wanted to go there. We went today, and I tried around where I found my Stamp Act button, and my dad went in another area. I found a few buttons, one of them is a really nice dandy button with raised dots, a shoe buckle frame fragment, a pocketknife at foot deep, and a shiny metal thing that I thought was a cob at first. My dad's one find of the day was by far the best though, an early navy button in beautiful condition, dating from 1795-1810 based on the backmark. I can't believe that this site has already produced two very historical button, from two different periods in American history! This one was probably worn in the War of 1812, based on it's time period. I can't wait to go back!

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
