Default Amazing Revolutionary War Button!

As we were leaving a site ( in Southern VT) with no good signals, I swung over a low tone and expected a shotgun shell. Instead, it was a Pewter Revolutionary War Button from the "Bloody 8th" Infantry that fought at Bunker Hill and Saratoga!

Rev is tough to find. I've found a few pewter buttons, but none with any recognizable marks. Congrats!!!
