    How to Clean Buttons

    I don't use water as a first cleaning method because the risks are too high. anything with a design made of brass or copper responds well to this method.

    Thank you very much BuckleBoy! That was an excellent tutorial on proper coin cleaning.

    If any of you have not read BuckleBoy’s tutorial, I HIGHLY recommend it.

    Banner all day long! my wife and I have found WWII dogtags for four men and have returned three to family and will have by the end of this week the 4th. we were super stoked with ours but your is at such a higher level of a find, totally awesome! The button was super awesome in itself but Holy Cow Man! I didn't realize they had those back then and it makes sense that people would purchase them. what a center piece for a collection or even for a museum. Wow, so wonderful. congrats on the find that blows a lot of us away!

    Congrats to you sir. I see 2019 starts out with a bang.

    The button is just awesome, but the Civil War ID tag is banner worthy. I know you’re stoked. Glad that the hard work paid off.

    Thanks for the nice post and pics.

    The nutria was introduced to Louisiana in the 1930s.

    Best of luck to you all in 2019.
