Default Always check past the hot rocks! (my first Eagle Button)

Spent a couple hours in my now favorite honey hole again this morning before work trying to find some more coins. Ended up getting a great little signal. I dig around and wouldn't you know I pull up a couple hot rocks. (they are fairly common here) well right as I was disappointed and getting ready to fill the hole, I see a stand out color from the dirt. I picked it out to find my first Eagle button!! Always check and recheck the hole!

If anyone knows the details to it off hand, please share.

Looks nice in good condition.
That eagle was use from civil war until 1908.

It will be the back makings that tell a closer time period.
So we need a much better close up pic of the back or you telling us what the exact markings are.

Yes, I always recheck the hole.

Congrats! And ALWAYS check the hole after you dig rocks OR finds. I have found other bullets in the same hole before. Dug a modern bullet one daym and then hit it one more time and lo and behold, there was a 3-ringer minie!
