    Continental Army USA Button!

    Hi everyone! I haven't been out detecting in over a month until today. It's summer break time for us. I have been itching to get out and dig some holes. I got an invite from a good friend to hunt a standing colonial home permission today for a few hours. I was running 14khz and Reactivity 5 on the Deus staying close to the house in the nails. I got a signal next to a large tree root and dug up my very first Continental Army USA Revolutionary War Button! I actually said OMG out loud. Click image for larger version.

    That's awesome! Congratulations! I just found my first last week. Yours looks considerably larger. Mine must be a cuff. It's about 20mm.

    Mine is roughly 21 - 22mm. I was reading Don Troiani's book last night and I remember seeing the smaller size buttons were around 18mm. There's tons of variants.

    My motto is "less is more" when cleaning relics. You can go too far and make them look terrible. Since it's pewter I stored it in moist dirt from the hole until I could get home to work on it. I got everything ready and then removed it from the dirt. I washed it off and gently toothpicked the dirt a little. After that, she got a five hour soak in Elmer's glue and water before three coats of Ren Wax.
