Thurs hunt with NJNYDIGGER
Quote this message in a reply
We went to our usual park and back to the general area where I found the 1891 seated last week. Hunted about 3 hrs but had to stop because of the high humidity. This kind of weather bothers me more as I get older and takes the fun out of detecting. Anyway, scored a 1927 Merc and 2 IH dated 1881 and 1892. Joe found a 1945 Washington and 4 IH and some other cool stuff that you can see on his post.
I'm also inclosing a picture of a button I found last week. It's marked "Lewis & Tomes" and "Extra Rich". As you can see there is still some gilding on the back. The front is plain and about the size of a dime. According to a website on buttons, it was made in the 1820,s and 1830's. Any add'l info would be appreciated. Gerry

I thought I could bring out more of the lettering but the corrosion was very hard and I was afraid to try and remove it any further for fear of removing the gilt. From the info I got off the internet, it was made around 1830. Gerry
