Well I traveled up I 95 to visit an old friend in southern Virginia. He lives on a late 1700s plantation home. I come up every year for a few days to visit and do some detecting. I got out today about noon and did find a few relics. My best find of the day was the Virginia 2 piece civil war button. Although it has a push on the face I love it. I also dug 4 flat buttons which I always enjoy. Also a few coins, a buckle and some other odds and end including a 1922 Virginia dog license that I believe is dated 1922. I’ll be going out again for a few hours tomorrow. Wish me luck. Thanks for looking and happy hunting to all!

Very nice button finds FF, sometimes the button finds save the day! :thumbsup:
I've always wondered why the backs of flat buttons were beautifully decorated and yet the front were left plain.
