    Awesome Jon-That 1st Reg button is killer. Glad to see you back out.
  6. Old military button find!

    Livery button in this case. Very similar to the Haitian "phoenix" buttons though. Here is coat and cuff of same style found in Lowcountry. Great find though!
  7. Early Marked Musket Butt Plate with English Broad Arrow

    Thanks. doing the research has definitely uncovered some great facts regarding this British Govt mark. I think you are right that these were issued to soldiers that were employed by the crown-not just basic, citizen militia.
  8. Early Marked Musket Butt Plate with English Broad Arrow

    Thanks Steve-I really did not know too much about the mark but what is great about this hobby is finding such a piece and then putting in the research and educating yourself as to its origins, history and use.

  11. S.C. Coastal Artillery Corp Button

    Yep-Clemson Agricultural College button. for most part, button stayed the same from inception (1889) through 1940s. Have found a few and I live in Clemson. For some reason , they are fairly scarce given the fact that the coat alone had over 33 buttons on them.
  12. Early Marked Musket Butt Plate with English Broad Arrow

    Hey everyone-been a while since I posted-been checking in regularly however. A week or so ago, headed to lowcountry for a quick two day dig-mosquitos are absolutely horrible and mornings were best time to get in the woods. Did fairly well with typical flat buttons, etc. Managed a beautiful 1775...
  13. ๐Ÿฅ‡ BANNER 1733 colonial sundial and others

    Keith-I haven't been on in quite a while and what a treat to see that incredible find up top. Don't think I have ever seen one in that condition and the craftsmanship is outstanding. I would think any of the top relic restorers could handle that. I will also reiterate what Glen (Down n' Dirty)...

    Congratulations. That has got to be one of the best dug examples ever! I will vote banner for condition and rarity on that one!!
  20. Happy Birthday George. Washington family relics!

    Great hunt and nice set of relics. Spans a pretty good period. Would have to see the back of the clipped corner piece but on surface does appear to be a plate. The buckle to the left of it is definitely a period (rev war) buckle.
