    What's the best find to get on Presidents Day Weekend... a GW!!!!

    Went back to that colonial farm that I've been finding all those buttons, and I am not even going to bore you all those buttons, except for one. I finally did it! A George Washington Inaugural Button!!

    It was about 20 yards from the home, in a grassy area, It read as 77, and I just thought, okay lets get this memorial penny out of the way.. boy was I surprised when I saw that big dandy laying flat in the hole!

    Maybe I'll post my other finds tomorrow, but for right now, I'm just going to have a beer and stare at this all night.
