    Seated Star

    Hey all,
    Long time no post on my finds, but I thought this one was pretty unique and wanted to share. Dug a silver star and it was super dark as all silver is in this spot. When I got home and cleaned it up again I was shocked when I wiped the back! Found some cigar tokens and a few other cool thing too.Click image for larger version.

    I wonder if it could have been some lawman's badge? I have heard that they sometimes made them from silver dollars.

    May have been a "Corp" badge from the Civil War ?
    Whatever it is, it is a nice find!
