    Agree, I don't care what you dig, if you don't have a good photo your chances of getting it up top are seriously diminished.

    Nice! That is exactly the type I found here in Delaware years ago. Yours is in better shape, and could be worth from 5 to 10k, but I would not sell it. There is one like it in the museum at Jamestown, VA, where the curator told me it was "priceless". When I found mine I contacted the Smithsonian curators and they told me there were less than 50 of this type known to exist. Maybe a few more now. Congrats, and welcome to the Holy Grail Club!

    Thx! I got super lucky with the condition of this button. The 3 other ones in the area were toasty. Iím sort of afraid to drop it, so I look at it through the Tupperware, crazy I know...

    Thx! Iíve been lucky enough to dig a few items that had that magical quality that you mention of holding true history in your hand. The home site from the 1860 map references the location belonging to a local pastor. Much of W PA was designated as Depreciation Lands for Revolutionary Soldiers compensation. I need to do some more research.

    Thx! I told my wife it was probably my most valuable find, but if I tell her it could be worth 5-10k she will sell it in a heartbeat...

    Thx! Actually my bucket list has never included a GW inaugural button. I did not think they could be found in my area, but itís definitely been a thrill and privilege to be lucky enough to swing over it.

    Thx! Yes, Iíll never forget the moment when I wiped the dirt away and saw the recognizable pattern. I was on my lunch break, so I did not even have a saves pouch, just carrying my scant finds in my back pocket, knew I couldnít stick this button in my pocket, so basically boogied back to my car...heart racing. Then back to my work office...
