    Massachusetts Artillery button

    I love September! I went out yesterday,cooler temps👍,Clear skies👍👍,no bugs👍👍👍 I used the reaper program for my deus and wanted to see how it compares. I'm a believer! Started off a little slow but I was hitting stuff I know missed last year.5 buttons,a hem weight and a small buckle. On one button I saw a cannon before cleaning it so I thought it was another war of 1812 button. It was but it's a Massachusetts Artillery button! There was only 2714 artillery so it's kind of a rare button. I'm over the moon on this one!!! It was a horrible sounding target too. They had put a square nail through the shank. I'm not sure why,maybe to display? Each year ,for the last 7 years, I've found something great in September,my streak is safe!Click image for larger version.

    Great recovery. A soldier may have put the square nail through the shank as a sewing fix.

    That's what I was thinking as well. May not have had any thread at the time of the needed repair. What an awesome button to find!

    Target must be in the ground...Coil must swing over target...User must dig.

    Gold for the money...silver for the pleasure...copper for the history.

    I do not use the Like button. Proper intercourse should not be replaced by a click.

    Terrific button. The square nail kind of makes it even more interesting, and it did not seem to effect the front. Congrats!

    That would have looked real sharp on a uniform.

    Love that button.

    I'm afraid we have to wait until mid November before it gets cool and bugs go away.
