Thread: Hey CRUSADER, drinks happening at my place too! :)

    Hey CRUSADER, drinks happening at my place too! :)

    If I could swim I'd probably make my way across the pond for a toast. Unfortunately I did not find a gold coin but to many a relic hunter it would be in range.

    Today my hunting bud and i made it back to our new little Colonial site on the creek. As I suspected it was on the quiet side, in fact I had nothing to show for my first hour. Deciding to leave the "iron patch" which I don't really like to do, paid off in a big way. This Rev War Officer button was found at maybe 8" or 9" and I knew when I seen it, it had potential to be quite good. To my surprise it's better than expected and would be among the finest known. It's not quite as rare or as valuable as it once was when there was only 2-3 known but even now would still buy a nice detector.

    Shortly after the button I wandered closer to the creek and dug what sounded like a deep shotgun shell. Nope! That's silver in the hole... and not just silver.. Colonial counterstamped silver! I don't know what it is (paging Don SJ.. Don SJ) but it's interesting. One side has what I think is GH? or CH? , the other side says "Hill". Will be hard to top this day for the rest of 2008 but I'll be out there trying.

    The condition of that Rare Revolutionary War Officer's button is superb and congratulations on finding one in that field in collector condition!!!!!! I am sure a lot do not comprehend the history of a button like that and that the rarity is up there and your button deserves all the kudos as much as any button posted on TNet. In other words it is a BANNER find! Much more important historically than most of the coins that make it and definitely rarer.


    I wish I could help you on the coin, the word Hill is also I believe a very Common surname of the British, so it could be most anything or have any meaning. I do agree that the letters look like script GR, so your hyposis is possible, but I think somewhat remote, but romantic enough to make for a good story.

    I hope more is to come there, even though it sounds like it might be tough to squeeze a few more goodies from the site, but knowing you, if something else is there, you will find it..........

    Again, Congrats on the finds today and especially the Revolutionary War button and the silver coin!

    The value will increase with judicious cleaning."

    Thanks Don. My friend has a reference that says Hill was a known counterstamp so maybe there is a chance. I too think very remote to be connected to a battle but it made for a good post.

    PS... Today was enough to finally get my other bud out. Hitting it tomorrow at 7am.

    Very awesome button! I bet thats the coolest find to date!! Thats so cool! Great job on the silver as well! To bad the detail was not as good as it could have been.

    WOW. That is one Incredible button! For a dug find, that is TOP condition, my friend~!

    So these finds were made where there was no iron patch? I don't usually wander far away from a good iron patch either, but I'm interested in learning a little more. Were you playing on a hunch when you wandered away from the iron?

    Was the button cleaned with Aluminum Jelly?

    The silver is certainly interesting--and I'm excited to hear more about the counterstamp.

    Congratulations on your BANNER day. Keep those incredible finds coming.

    I have no idea what a button like that is worth, but I would be on Cloud 9 if I found something like that! What an AMAZING piece of history.

    Great BANNER find!
