    Rose-Gold Plated Irish Button & ’05 King Edward VII Quarter

    On Saturday I went back for an hour to the site where I’ve been finding the aluminum tags and found two more before my coil died. On Sunday I arrived at the site at 5:30am and detected the ‘Hastings’ field for almost 3hrs. I then headed next door and detected a field at the very back of the ‘Brignal’ property next door for another hour. Both are circled in green on the c1870 map. The ‘Hastings’ site has produced well for me since I first detected it in 2015, so I wasn’t surprised too when I found the flat one-piece ‘Irish’ button.

    What I was surprised at was the rose-gold colored plating and the Latin inscription ‘Quis Separabit’. Which translates to ‘Who Separate’.

    “Quis separabit is a Latin motto derived from the Vulgate translation of Romans 8:35: "Quis ergō nōs sēparābit ā cāritāte Christī..." translated as "Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? The motto is associated with Ulster unionism, Ulster loyalism and the British Army in Ireland: for example, it is used in the British Army by the Royal Dragoon Guards, the Royal Ulster Rifles, the London Irish Rifles, the Irish Guards, and the North Irish Horse, and it is also the motto of the Order of Saint Patrick. The phrase also appears on the Seal of South Carolina and inscribed on the alumnus ring of Clemson University.” - Wikipedia

    The button is in beautiful condition and was made by Jones & Son, unfortunately the writing beneath this is illegible. Along with the fancy button, I found a 1905 Canadian Quarter, a ‘Shield Buckle’ and a small decorative stamped-brass buckle. I also found what I feel may be a very worn, right facing King George III Halfpenny (1770-1775).
    If anyone can tell me anything about the maker or the significance of the history behind this button, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks very much for looking,
    Dave

    Thanks Cru, the rose-gold plating is definitely unusual.
    Personally, I'm very interested know the symbolism behind this button.

    Hope you and your Dad are doing well,

    Thank you as always for your post and support Patriot!
    I've always had good success detecting the fields next to old farm houses.
    A lot of these fields weren't actually farm fields yet back in the day, most were just part of the homesteads extended yard.

    Also, the traffic in and out of the fields from the farmhouses always makes for losses and good finds.

    I'm not really sure Gary, I was hoping one of the members here on Tnet might be able to tell me.

    You had a morning out Dave, a well rounded hunt. Nice to see a silver pop out for you, they seem to be scarce at times. Hope you'll get some answers pertaining to the button soon, it's a nice keeper.

    Thanks for your post and for your advice Jim, it's much appreciated.

    I've identified a couple of potential new sites down the road that I'm going to check out this weekend.

    Is this relevant to your button, Dave? https://books.google.com/books?id=Ns...button&f=false
