Hey hey diggers!
It's been a hectic spring with lots going on...but getting in some digging too!
I got in a few hunts in the last week or so with some decent finds and had couple of firsts along with some old favourites.
First up a watch winder with a glass jewel in it! I've seen them dug up in vids but to find my own...outstanding !
Next was a Seated Quarter...we dont find many of these up north here so it was something that had to be shared.
Another first! A cool little coin from Sweden..
1/12 skilling from 1808...small farthing sized coin...pictured with Royal Navy button circa 1790s and early British militia button 1830s ish.
How about a livery button....Easily identifiable..
Adair family. One of my nicest liveries!
And finally...what is detecting without copper coins !
A few old tokens from pre confederation and a Canadian cent that been heavily clipped!
Still lots of time to get over some more amazing finds from our past before the crops are reaching for the sky.

''British militia button 1830s ish.''

Not seen this type of button before. I suspect it maybe a little earlier, circa 1800-1815.

Do you know which Militia it is?

You look like you have detected once or twice before this. :)

Well done.

I dont doubt that it is an earlier button...info was always limited on this obscure unit
From research of another detectorist, the id of the militia was the Royal Staniary Loyal Artillery...a unit made of mostly tin miners
We have been finding these buttons for over 20 years now( I have several and different styles)
As far as I know they have only been found here( Atlantic Canada) and the UK(? Unknown location)
I wish I had a bigger picture of this unit to share

You've put some nice stuff in the pouch lately, well done.
Liking the watch winder, first of this type I've seen posted.
Nice 1855 One Cent, never have dug one here.
That's a clipped 1919 for sure, looks like they needed some copper to make something.
