pulled another Civil war era General service button for the collection.
a few other flat buttons, and a piece to a large flat button.
a large rusted out buckle. a few other odd pieces, and another marble.
and my first ever CANNON BALL ... Yes
( wonder who lost that game of marbles )

Thanks for peeking,
and Happy New Year ....

Bones ...
might run out for another quick hunt after lunch ...

This ones gotta be somewhere around 10 lbs
felt more like 50 lbs toting it home
ive been wanting to dig one for a while myself, so pretty happy about finding it.
should make a nice display piece.
