I spent last week up at my cottage with my family and I am still finding some awesome buttons there!

I found most of these using the small coil since the area is nail infested.

The below buttons are my oldest US military buttons I have found. They date from 1803-1812 if I remember correctly. All of the other buttons that we find are post War of 1812... 1812-1820 usually.

Below is a pic of two buttons. I dug the complete one a couple years ago and I dug the cut one last week. Nice clean cut...definitely done on purpose.

Here is the relic group shot. There are two tinkling cones (one partially made), a lock key hole, a musket ball, a half circle pc of lead, some plain flat buttons and ball button.
