Default 1915 WW1 Canadian 230 Battalion Button

Wow the Makro Kruzer does it again. This time I pull a piece of real Canadian history. I was not expecting a find like this in an old school field. Even if it is late 19th century. I actually make a few cool button finds today. Loving the Kruzer and for the record have never had a machine pay itself off this fast. 4 Tone for the Win!!

Fivepin, you have found a nice piece of history! Wouldn't it be great if you could find the soldier it belonged too? Very nice find!

My thoughts exactly... I am going to the museum (across the road from my dig field) and have contacted my old high school history teacher...I am going to do some digging...might be a tough one to puzzle out though.
