  2. War of 1812 button and a few other great items from the new farm

  5. Rev War no more but it's old and gold

    There was plenty of mid. 1800s activity close by so it's very possible it dates mid. 1800s but the exact little site I found it was all earlier stuff. Basically just buttons.
  6. Rev War no more but it's old and gold

    For many years my best finds for the year would usually be Rev War buttons and I wondered how things would go if the tap was ever turned off, and I'm kind of finding out now as it's down to a drip. The answer seems to be I would still find good stuff, just different, and here is a great example...

  19. Today's ID of Rare Button from 2018

    Walked through a site at the top of the field but wanted to see if there was anything at the bottom. Didn't find anything but got the button on the way down. It is funny how it goes, you can dig a few hundred targets in a day and not get much but dig one and it be a good keeper.
