    My first George Washington Inaugural Button!

    Joe and I went out for a little while to a cellar hole we've been at before, we were up to 9 assorted coppers including a nice Fugio. The wind was blasting at 40 mph, kept away from the big trees but still it was freaky up on the hillside. Found two more coppers today, and going slow along the edges in-between nails I found what I think is my first GW button:

    Not quite the same but I think it's in the ballpark. I figured you guys would know. Shank is perfect, kind of afraid to touch it to see if there's any writing on the back. Looks like it had some gold gilt at one time.

    Here are the other two coppers I found:

    It looks like the head is missing? Could it be underneath the crud? Definitely don't want to touch it now...
