    The Weekend Keepers

    Yesterday we hunted a farm site reported settled in the 1820s, the really cool part was that on the same farm there had been a church and a school in the late 1800s that were torn down sometime in the 1950s. We found a lot of cool iron relics but I forgot to get any pictures of those, sorry. Anyway, here is a picture of the keepers including flat buttons dug at the home site one of which dates from 1828 to 1834, the watch back and the jewelry piece also came from the home site. The barber dimes and the wheaties (1911D & 1944D) came from the church along with the plated what's it.

    Today we hunted a local civil war camp site and found the buttons, bullets, and wrench. I also posted the wrench on the what is it forum trying to get an idea if it is date consistent with the other relics found. Thanks for looking. HH.

    Your button was made between 1828 and 1836 according to the chart I found, which you already have written down. But I like this link. Heres the Link
