F75 Still on it's way, slow postal delivery

Was hoping to use the F75 today but it's getting bogged down within the Postal Service. Went to the woods with my 505 instead, this is what I dug up, anyone know if the flat button is civil war, I think it is but not really sure, don't know what the handle went to either, the bottom side is flat, any ideas? Got the two ringer and round ball in the vicinity of the other two finds, not a bad day in the woods, only spent a few hours there

Not a whole lot worse then waiting for a new detector to be delivered. Looks like you have a good spot to use it on, too. Merry Christmas, HH jim tn

Your right, not much worse than waiting for the postal service bringing that detector to my door step. These areas keep revealing some good finds now and again and there are definitely some areas that my 505 just can't perform right, I can't hardly wait to hit those area's with the F75.
That bottom piece in the pic's looks like part of the trigger guard to an Enfield rifle

Button looks civil war period. If US is completly round will be civil war period. If corners are squared off a little it will be post civil war. Good finds.

Hi, it may be a Collar Disk rather than a button. The letter U looks to be squared off on the corners, like the type one disk. U S in block letters (1910-1924) These were made of bronze w/ threaded post, 1" diameter. The U S buttons ( GI 30 ) were Army General Service 1 piece, cast pewter, 1808-1830, with 14mm-23mm diameter. Nice finds, enjoy your f75. HH Jerry
