Default Early 1800s New York Militia buttons and more...

I finally made it back to my 1795 site this morning. I hunted for 5 hours and found a few D buckles and a couple of cuff flat buttons and a few other relics. The best two finds were the early 1800s New York Militia buttons. There were found 5 foot apart but are in totally opposite conditions. Im going back in the morning. Ty for looking and HH!

While the buttons are certainly cool, I find myself enamored by the circular nature of your fingerprint in the 3rd photo. Did you design that yourself?

Wow! New York militia buttons near Danville VA. There's got to be some good history there if you could only figure it out. Great finds!
