    Saturday's finds - Buttons, Buckles and Silver

    These were found Saturday on a club hunt. This site produced my first old U.S. money find, a 1829 capped bust half dime. Also found were buckles, buttons, a musket ball, an old knife, a 1947 roosie, iron plows and other iron pieces. All in all an excellent day of detecting. Any help in identifying these two buttons would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    I was just glad that there were other people there to see me pull it out of the ground. This is my first really old us minted coin. I have found half reales from the 1700's and considered them my best finds but the half dime has topped those.

    WAH WAH look at me and what I found, what you failed to mention while you were having your stellar day, is that the person who set this little hunt up was so busy checking your and marks finds I had no time to find anything cool of my own Just Joking, I'm glad you found all that stuff. You deserve all the glory, you're one hell of a MD'R. Excellent finds Mike Congrats!!!
