NJ fields are opening up....Rev War Navy button, Phoenix button & more!!!

The fields are starting to finally open up here in Jersey so spent about 3 hours at one of our favorites.....and had a banging day!! Pretty much crushed it......

Got over a bunch of flat buttons, 3 KG Coppers....KG1 dump farthing, 1730 KG2 half penny, and 1799 KG3, cool flintlock pistol shaped watch winder and a few other trinkets......had a few surprises when I cleaned up the flat buttons.....one was a Rev War Navy and one was one of those crazy 1820s - 1830s Haitian militia Phoenix buttons, also got a nice early blow hole or vent back button.

Hopefully this is a sign of things to come for the fall relic season.....

Here's the mess....


Coinage on the day.....%*&@$ Merc dime....thought for sure it was gonna be older like capped bust :cns


Good buttons......I'm a little confused on whether the Navy is Continental US or British, any help would be appreciated

Cool little pocket watch winder shaped like a flintlock pistol

Close up of the Phoenix button.....came out of a wet area of the field and its toasted but it is what it what it is and I'm pretty stoked to have found it, you can see the 26 at the bottom, some of the letters around the edge like CEND to the right of the wing and part of the Phoenix's right wing and the flames below ....its hard to see in these pics but its there. How this button got into a field in New Jersey is beyond me but there's some interesting theories and history online about them....cool stuff.


Here's a nice one I found online.....

And need an ID on this thing.....I find them all over the place and have no idea what there are, I'm sure its something simple and I'm sure its been said before but I just don't know if I should stop saving them...

And for you fresh out of the ground guys.....here's one of the KGs


Well....thanks for looking and take it easy.....
