    Thanks Roger!



    Thanks Jeff! That's my 3rd VT button so I'm lucky I guess in that sense. Yeah, the weather essentially shut us down the Friday after Thanksgiving. Snow has melted after a brief...

    Another solid round of detecting Jared! Those tinkling cones and trade rings have a good probability of being somewhat older than the buttons. At least, that's what folks around here say in New...

    You have some patience there Jeff! Don't know if I could handle all that modern stuff. Yeah, I'm willing to dig a few beer/pop cans along roadways at old sites, but a modern day camping site - that's...

    Thank you Dan. Here's a shot of the back if that helps. The item is exactly 4 inches long. Maybe a decorative adornment to a handbag or other leather item maybe. Give me your best guess!
