    1853 Seated Dime, stunning 1840 Navy officer button and more at colonial homesite

    Went back to an old homesite that had produced a block A and tons of flats. Went to a back field I really did not spend much time at previously and was rewarded with lots of relics. Beautiful 1840s Navy loaded with Gilt. Basically came out of ground in perfect condition. Very nice 1853 seated dime . Nice flower button and more. Great day out

    Is the Naval button fairly rare in this condition?

    It's tough to say which would get me more excited the coin or the button! They are both really nice but I'll go with the button with an amazing amount of gilt left on it! Also the large round piece looks like a colonial bit boss for a horse. That's my guess!

    The round piece is a horse rossette

    Flipping sweet digs!!
    God grant me the serenity
    to accept the things I cannot change;
    courage to change the things I can;
    and wisdom to know the difference.
