    Metal Detecting

    Button whatsits and my 1st ever coin find-1900 Indian Head!!!!

    We decided to metal detect on our hunting land in Southampton co on the spur of the moment. We have had some luck here in the past but with our old detectors. Some of the locals have told us that there was an encampment there but with over 200 acres we aren’t exactly sure where it’s at but we have found lots of arrow heads so...we started there first. Surely there would be something to find there. And with only a few hours to hunt we weren’t disappointed. I got my 1st coin!!!

    Can you guys help identify these buttons we found. I was able to research the N&W button but not the other 2. Any thoughts?

    Congrats on your finds!

    What you have there are early brass overall buttons.
    Here are some examples of 'Indian Head' buttons I found online.

    Best of luck to you on your return, there's bound to be more coins to be found!
