    Brutally hot & humid but worth it in the end War of 1812 Artillery regt button

    Door knocked at this house that had a cellar next to her house in the woods. sweet little old lady answered. At 1st she was apprehensive saying I don't wanna disturb anything down there. then I said i have a display case in my car of stuff I find at cellars, she perked up and started talking about how she loves history, so after some small talk she said "ah go ahead"! not many targets there and she has lived there since 1960 so somebody hit this place by sneaking on there. she told me a few years ago she saw somebody down there digging and ran him off. so at the end of the day i showed her everything and asked if she wanted anything. she was like no you keep it. you sweated for those finds and if you wanna come back when its cooler please do. . a couple buttons one being a War of 1812 Regimental Artillery. a broken shoe buckle frame and chape and 2 iron buckles and a old pocket knife

    I have four copies of this button, all dug at the same place in upstate NY. They are badly corroded, and nowhere near as nice as yours. Congrats!

    I would put those finds (the nice ones) in a small frame and gift it to the lady. You'll have a new friend and a place to dig forever. Karma will reward you will more finds. Gary

    I found the exact one but the patina flakes off like paper the minute it hit dry air, which was heartbreaking. Yours looks great - nice work
