So on a permission in Southern NH and chase down a sketchy signal in an Iron infested area.
Pull out this bad boy. Had no idea what it was until I got home I just knew it was old. Cool history behind this button, and very rare on the east coast.

Great button. I was lucky enough to dig one last year in Mass. Mine was Regiment 20. Great history, wonderful design, and a rare find around here. Congrats!

Buttons are sweet especially when you discover some history researching them that you may never have been aware of, awesome dig!
