[FONT=&quot]With the excellent weather this weekend, decided to spend it swinging. Was well pleased with the finds. It's not quantity sometimes but quality. No coins to speak of but made up for it with buttons! The top is a big ol tombac that is always fun to dig. After that a nice [/FONT][FONT=&quot]colonial[/FONT][FONT=&quot] flat button, a lot going on with that one in terms of fancy (at least for me). Then...Civil War galore! Two varying sized General Service buttons that are quite fragile but still there. Also pulled my first two Confederate Virginia State Seal buttons!! The first is a bit worn but nice back mark and the second is a real beauty and I think possibly rare as the sword is pointed up on that one? Last but not least...some shoe buckle frameage. With the exception of the tombac, all finds thereafter found in one place. I'd say a great spot indeed![/FONT][FONT=&quot] HH!

Got to love quality over quantity hunts, the soils were so kind to the Virginia State Seal button, love the patina!
Congrats on the hunt and all the best if a return hunt happens.

Your Virginia State Buttons are nice but...
I have a question on the ''flat button, a lot going on with that one in terms of fancy (at least for me)''
What metal do you think it's made of?
