Had a great weekend at 2 different sites in Central VA that produced some colonial CW and Victorian period relics. Highlights are the confederate A button the 5th rebel button I dug at this site(CSA , VMI, block I and VA button). Some really nice Victorian sash and early colonial buckles(1600s /1700s) along with some decorative buttons. Very interesting PB button which dates early 1800s I am thinking it is the original owners initials ? My cut silver streak has been halted however. Always a bonus to get out in the summer..
