Well had an incredible day with the Deus 2 at the site where I dug the War of 1812 Infantry button. This time more buttons and a Rev War British King's Orange Rangers Button, 1761 half real, and a 1/4 cut 8 Real which I believe the date to be 1772. Video of the hunt is also attached in the YouTube link below.

What a great hunt. Congratulations. Looks like that cut piece of eight isn't quite a 1/4. Someone got short changed lol

Very interesting finds. Cut silver is high on my bucket list. That is probably the nicest tombac button I have ever seen - what a beautiful design. Congrats on the great dig.

Holy cow...you had a great hunt. I would love to find a cut real...it's on my list, but haven't swung my coil over one yet. BTW- the design on that button is really neat. Big congrats!

Very nice hunt. Rev War buttons are hard to come by in any condition. Love the fancy button and the cut Spanish too.
