    A couple of colonial pieces and pewter military button!

    I went to the old wharf area and got cold and muddy for a few hours. The placed is trashed over with modern junk, but it paid off today. I am always thrilled to see any Rev War show up and this one is easily my best USA pewter. Fresh from the mud! Thanks for looking.

    Dang! I just did a banner vote for Whatdayagot's pewter USA button. This one looks like it was just cast last week. That's amazing!

    SCKeith, that is one beautiful USA button. Both an oldie and a Goodie. What an addition to your display this button will make. Very Well Done, and a great save of our Early American History.

    Thank you for your nice comments. The button was found by raking muck and debris. The mud preserves pewter well sometimes like this. I dont know how deep it was but I raked out maybe 6 inches on average, so not real deep.
