    Rev War Rattlesnake Button!!!!

    Where to begin? I wasn't going to get out today. Thank God I did! My buddy and I got into a new permission and in the back of their property they cleared a big section of brush and trees. So we started out back. We found some decent stuff nothing crazy. Then I found a large cent, my buddy found a King George 1st copper. About 2 minutes after he dug the KG1 I dug a button. At first I though it was British. It looks like a crown in the middle. Then I saw rattlesnakes and counted 13 dots on top.

    I didn't want to get too excited but when I got home and busted out Don Trioni's book Insignia of Independence. I was anxiously turning the pages until I got to the rattlesnake button section. Damn I just dug the best button I've found to date!! A Revolutionary War rattlesnake button!! Bucket lister!

    I'm sure it's not common, but I wouldn't care how rare it is. It's just beyond cool. Wow.

    I don't know about rarity but I do know that I will probably never find one down here in south Georgia. Albert's lists the button but does not give a relative value that would indicate its rarity.
