Just got back from vacation and had a blast in upstate ,NY. Secured permission on private property and hunted a War of 1812 camp. What a rush pulling button after button! This place was absolutely mind blowing for us. So many buttons, gun tools, bullet molds, vent pick chains and flash pan brush tubes, musket balls and coins. I was up there in May before this last visit and had the same results. 1st photo is my total finds from this camp. The ground conditions were perfect and pewter buttons and coins came out in amazing condition. Sites like this are once in a lifetime and I will cherish every moment of digging here with great friends!

That is absolutely incredible!
It would take most a lifetime to find that many amazing relics/coins.
When are we going?….lol
Do you have any photos of them still in the plug?
I really didn't take any pics of them in the dirt still. sorry

Fantastic finds. Untouched camps from 1812 are hard to locate. Someone did their homework.
we worked hard to get on this property. thanks!

HEAVYMETALNUT, what can I say that hasn't already been said, but this was an Over the Top, Stellar hunt for sure. Fantastic Historical Saves that would enhance anyone's collection. I too love those buttons and the Trench Art Eagle. Some of my favorite personal finds are carved bullets from soldiers turned artist. You were correct in that this area was a once in a lifetime hunt with some Great Saves. Congrat's and Well Done all round on some Saved History.

Just got back from vacation and had a blast in upstate ,NY. Secured permission on private property and hunted a War of 1812 camp. What a rush pulling button after button! This place was absolutely mind blowing for us. So many buttons, gun tools, bullet molds, vent pick chains and flash pan brush tubes, musket balls and coins. I was up there in May before this last visit and had the same results. 1st photo is my total finds from this camp. The ground conditions were perfect and pewter buttons and coins came out in amazing condition. Sites like this are once in a lifetime and I will cherish every moment of digging here with great friends!
Outstanding on your beautiful post
Voting Banner..
A museum would surely love to have some of these

Thanks everyone for all the awesome replies and banner votes! We were truly blessed to have the opportunity to be able to hunt this site. We felt a deep connection to this site every day we were there. Plan on going back in the spring.
