Thread: USA BUTTON, JERSEY, CONN. HIBERNIA

    The button with stars on it appears to have letter or something on it, that might require trying to remove some crud and see if there is, I would think just stars around the perimeter would be a bit odd, but having some letter or letters/numbers would make sense............
    "The mantra has always been don't clean a (copper) coin or it will lose value.
    For undug coins this is true. For dug coins this is untrue.
    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    That USA, CONTINENTAL ARMY, BUTTON deserves Banner! Usually the letters aren't that crisp! That has very little wear. BANNER! Mine made it and was just like it. That is a FANTASTIC FIND. The Connecticut is an M.36-1.1. 95% sure.

    If you look close the button is covered with stars. They are just really worn. I see 2, possibly 3, rows anyways. Some kinda day!

    Glad to see the added close-up photos of the coppers you dug. Fantastic metal detecting results. The USA button is stunning, especially for a pewter button.
    got Mass Silver?

    Easily a Banner button!
    Imo I guess.
    None ive recovered come close to yours regarding condition.
    When any gold coin goes up top, I just don't understand why THAT BUTTON doesn't
    My vote is in there with hogges.
    Big congrats!
    maybe adding a square cropped pic will help, mods may not feel like editing that tall image

    Wow! Fantastic find on the USA button! They rarely come out of the ground that nice! I don't know why that's not up on the banner yet but I'm putting my vote in

    Now, I think that button with the stars might actually be a snake button. There are areas around the rim that look too regular to be corrosion and in fact, look kinda like scales (particularly at the 7p position).

    I'll be the first to admit I don't know much about colonial buttons so someone more versed in this area could definitely tell you more.
