Most recent hunt and fighting my way through a bad old-military button slump and it's certainly not do to the lack of trying and the numbers, just not getting over one. But that doesn't mean it wasn't a good day out having found an early French silver, a 1726 12 Sols, only my 2nd of this type from this period. Along with it came a couple George II Halfpennies, tombac designed button and a matching pair of brass buttons.

Yeah you weren't kidding about the coppers having detail...those are nice and the silver coming up on three centuries old ain't bad either!
The only designs on my buttons were military but those are lookers too!

Nice catch on the 1726 silver!
It would be great to see more coppers in that detail instead of burnt greenies, well done.
Pretty cool to get the matching buttons.
