Went back to the 1830s farm site for a couple hours this afternoon and found some more flat buttons. The largest one I found is a match to three others I have found there in the past. I also found another round ball. I lost one of the flat buttons I found so I guess I'll have to go back again next week. This Farm is a little unusual from others I've dug at because I have only found three 1800s coins there but at least 15 flat buttons. I think the cube shaped piece of lead might have been a die since it is cube shaped but it is pretty beat up

I found the button I lost yesterday in my junk pile. It looks like they had used silver to solder the loop on the back.

Here is my collection of buttons from this site; most of them flat buttons.
