Good dig day! I've dug two Hampton Military Academy buttons with the building on them (today being my second), but I've never dug nor seen any images of an HMA button with the state motto figures on it! Maybe it's just me. Anyone know what the arrowhead or double hoop pieces are? V nickel is rough, but it's an 1889. The pistareen is either 1718 or 1719. Not sure what the turtle-shaped lead (pewter, maybe?) piece is, either...

I'm thinking the arrowhead looking piece might be a watch fob. Nice finds.

Gotta love the older military memorabilia. More history to explore and research!! Im to the point in the hobby that learning the history of the piece is more fun than how it got there or dropped by whom (unless there is an Elvis connection) 😂
