    King's Royal Regiment.Some gold,silver,Fur Trade and prehistoric finds.

    Finally have a bit of time to write a post. In the last 3 weekends did a good number of hunts. Finds weren't abundant by I managed to get a few quality items.

    My best find was my first Revolutionary War loyalist's button and not of just any regiment but that of King's Royal Regiment of New York (or Johnson's Royal Regiment of New York) raised in 1776, a very rare find. I have been hoping to stumble upon a loyalist button for a long while, just didn't dream hitting KRR right away. It looks pretty good, compared to other examples I've seen in the past.

    An other unexpected find was this engraved gold ring. I rarely find gold on my fields so it was a welcome site to see it shine in the dirt. The age of it, didn't seem to match the usual period of the relics I find as the ring looked to be in a 100 years old range. With the help of engraved initials, I managed to trace the most probable descendant of its owner. It wasn't that hard,as it was the farmer that presently owns the land. The ring appears to have belonged to his great,great uncle Salem G. who died around 1940 I contacted the farmer by phone and later dropped the ring at his mail box. Glad I managed to recover a part of their family history.

    An other ''mystery'' pewter...I did find a few of them in the past, this time I might actually have ID'd it as I have found a book online that migh be of their Standing Orders. Seems to be of 1st Battalion of Volunteer Militia Rifles of Canada.

    That arrowhead looks to be a woodland period triangular arrow point. They are quite common in late prehistoric sites on the east coast. Great finds, I love the buttons and good on ya for tracking down the ring' s rightful owner!

    Beauty of a rare Rev War button...condition is amazing
    coins are really nice for out of the ground as always

    Your gesture of giving back the ring to the family is admirable, well done!
