    Nice finds. Really like all the silver but that dime is especially clean. I'll be glad when winter gets here. That is our prime hunting season down here in south Georgia. But, I am going at daybreak...

    Thanks for the reply. I wasn't questioning the age just what reference you used so that I might be able to help someone down the line ID a button they find. I know it is really tricky trying to...

    I also love the buttons. In case you didn't know, your A.Benedict button dates from 1823-1829. I see at least one more backmark in your pictures,

    Is the piece hollow? Could it be a bell or a bell clapper? Or could it be part of a wind chime?

    Nice find. I don't think I will ever find a coin like that down here. I won an X35 11" coil and took it on a test hunt today. I had a hard time with it to be honest. No matter what program I tried...
