    US Officers Button

    I went to a spot that is close to town, a few houses used to be there, just grass now. Very near where I found the SC button last month.

    There is always plenty of trash, but coins were showing up too. This hole had a coin, and a marble in it.

    9 wheaties showed up, but no silver coins, I was a bit put off by that. It would have been nice to have a silver coin.

    I was glad to see this Model T valve stem cap, as it’s around 100 years old.

    I got a small buckle, but I don’t think it’s very old. Input appreciated. A piece of harmonica reed too.

    When I first saw this I thought it was from 1875, I was all excited until I looked closely and saw that it was NUMBER 1875, expired in 1961. Damn.

    I just knew it was a military button and from the shape, either an Excelsior or US Staff Officer... Closer examination would seem to indicate that this is a post-1875 button. It’s a “tin back”.

    If I’m not correct, let me know.

    Here is a picture of all the goodies at once.

    Very interesting selection of finds Tom, you never know what's going to pop up at these old home sites!
    Love the old marble too, any eyeball find 'keepers' are always a bonus.
