Today I decided to get out on my property due to the warm spell Virginia has been having. My expectations weren’t too high, on account of my hunting this site for three or four years with little production. I decided to slow down and dig some more questionable targets around two giant rock piles that I believe to be chimney stacks and dug a small length of chain. I checked the hole again and found that there was another small signal a little deeper in the hole. I saw a round object, pulled it out, turned it over and just about passed out! I’d found my very first civil war button, and a good one too. The button is in extremely good condition with the lined block C on the front being very pronounced and the back, along with the shank, intact. Really goes to show that patience pays off!
