Near a 20 year chase and it's over and who would have thought, all a person has to do is go to the right sites and swing over the right targets!

My first finds post for the new updated T-net and for my fall season, the better stuff dug over the last 3 weeks. This is a nice coat and cuff button that's a local militia to me that I have been chasing since the Summer of 2002! Never would I have imagined I'd get the coat size and 4 days later at a different site in an entirely different area get the cuff. Also along the way I found the Spanish Real, 1700s British Navy, 2 early French bale seals and a silver ring off a site where everything is at least 200 years old. Really looking forward to the next 6-8 weeks!

Great looking militia buttons!...considering they're Rev War era they held up .
Hoping for a early harvest in the fields so we can get out for some more chances at some old sites.
Going to be awesome getting out and making some more finds soon!

Am I correct to read on the back of the 1 R that it was minted in Mexico under the charge of C.V.? Testing my ability to interpret the writing on these coins.
