    Button

    I found this small button today in Massachusetts. I cleaned it up a bit, but unable to detect any marks. Thoughts?

    Looks early to me. Gotta be at least 1700s. If that’s there then there’s gotta be more!

    1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard Fizzle! Well, considering "New England" consists of six states - you might consider (in alphabetical order) browsing Sub-Forum: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont for information directly related whichever state you actually live in...
    2nd - Nice button! I see members are already jumping in with a possible ID...

    Thanks for the welcome. The site is promising. It was formerly a well traveled colonial cartpath along with collapsed stone bridge. I have permission for approximately 500 linear feet of road plus the the bridge. It has turned up a few coins, Merc and Wheat, both 40's as well as horseshoes and a lot of iron bits.

    Welcome. It is a cast pewter 18th century button. The colonists cast a lot of their own buttons back then.

    Will upload pics from the site as it progresses. It appears we are about to freeze out which is a total bummer. I am hopeful the upgrade to the Deus, from my very trusty and excellent Tesoro Silver will produce the goods.

    I wonder if the date range is late 1600's to very early 1700's.

    Hopefully the site will produce some more examples. Where it was found beside a colonial roadway, and a main one at that, I expect the finds will cover a reasonably long period of time. I believe roadway was rerouted to the new path sometime before 1900.
