Button, button, who’s got the button?

Swinging in the yard after work today. Nothing spectacular. A stinkin lincoln, an unknown car part, and a very old rusty door hinge. Decided to go in and get dinner and swing my way back to the door. I hit on a penny range signal and dug it. Never expected a pre-civil war button that’s for sure. Also a picture of my assistants…

It's really cool to find something old, like your button, where you really were not expecting an old find. Reminds me of the time I was detecting one of my sister's rental houses in Buffalo NY. The house was built in 1918. I got a quarter signal at 3" near the sidewalk and dug a Regiment of Artilerist's button. My first War of 1812 relic. It was probably lost during the Battle of Fort Erie. Best of luck and...
Happy Hunting!

The unexpected is what has given me the bug for this hobby. I’m blessed to live somewhere that I can practice in my yard and find stuff like this. This one tops the WWI army button that I found here as well.

Have to decide when you sell them, wholesale or RE-TAIL LOL At least you have a name for one of them "Buttons"

I hesitate to reply, because this could go on without end 😄 All 3 are going to their adopted homes this weekend. Not much resale value around here, the market is saturated. We do call their mom Bobbi, short for Bobtail
