  4. Small Military Eagle Button

    Posting for a buddy of mine that located this little gem a few months back. About 5/8" in diameter (smaller than a dime) and is pictured with a large paperclip. I am thinking pre Civil War and perhaps a collar button. Thanks for any insight!!

    + Great question... I have seen coins like this-But in really good condition go for 200.00+ I feel this one will probably have a value at a fraction of that. This is a coin that has no value as far as a low production run-miss marks ect... But the value to me and how/where I got is priceless...

  19. โœ… SOLVED Need to I.D. A Nickel size Disc Found In A Turn Of The Century Site
