Today was Day 7 of our heatwave up in the Boston area. This morning the temperature was hovering around 90 degrees with very high humidity. I couldn't ask for much better detecting weather, so off I went into the woods. I only lasted a couple of hours , but managed a couple of nice finds.

The highlight of the hunt was a National Lancers coat button ( Albert's MS73). The Lancers were organized in Boston in 1836 by Massachusetts Governor, Edward Everett, and served with distinction during the Civil War as part of the 1st Massachusetts Cavalry. They fought in 11 battles and campaigns during the war, including: Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorville, Gettysburg, and Petersburg. This single piece button is in nice shape, and cleaned up pretty well. The back mark reads " Robinson's Xtra Rich"

The other interesting find was a Jamaica One Penny. The coin dates to the early 1900's, and it looks like someone turned it into a pendant. How it ended up in the woods of Massachusetts is probably an interesting story.

Thatโ€™s a very nice button, and you did a great job with the cleaning. I really liked the background info too.

I have grown tired of this heat, but will soon be complaining about the snow, I suppose.

Congrats on the finds. Keep cool.

Interesting button. Nice job. The good thing about the heat is is seems to keep the ticks at bay. The bad thing is now you have to watch the chiggers!
