    Nice handful! The US Navy button is in great condition. From what I could find out, your button style was most common during the Civil War, but was used right up through WW2. Cool finds.


    "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.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Great some pictures for a change & glad you just didn't post the video as normal. Now at least I can share in your success - congrats!

    Wow really nice buttons and that IHP is perfect! Congrats you did really well. The fact that it's from a CW camp makes that coin even better!

    As I stated else-ware , now zooming in on the IH , "That 1859 CN (Fatty) is in amazing condition , even with the rim dings .
    IMO It's by far your most valuable find, & The buttons ..well & the cent represent that NY Camps history.

    If I hit Fantasy 5 , or did a HUGE Gold Nugget , Ill be in the LC often as possible.

    As I am finding , In life we begin having the Blissful happiness & the Wonder & innocence of a Child, then fall Quickly, then spend the rest of our lives trying to reach that point where we began ,through Pleasure , Fame, & Materials but Only 'Through true faith in Jesus , can we find Prefect Happiness or true Meaning in our Short lives on this Beautiful Earth filled with both the Light of Pure goodness & The Darkness of Pure Evil.
