Default IHP and other cool stuff.

Got a whole day today, about 6 hours to hunt, first place was the old farm field dug some cool thing's including an 1890 IHP and what I think is my first flat button(any help with that would be great). Got a little warm in the sun and walked a creek bottom where I found the root/bottle top not something you see every day so I kept it. Then off to the park just had a fair their last week got about six bucks in clad. All in all not a bad day. thanks for looking.

That looks more like a hem weight than a button. Is it heavy for it's size?

Not too heavy, made of copper I think, never found anything like it. I have found bigger hem weights before.

Congrats on the neat finds! Green Indians are always a welcome sight. That looks like an old shirt button. Iíve found a couple that look similar.

Thank you. I'm not sure what the button thing is. Never dug anything that looks like it before.

I'll trade the east cost coppers for the west cost gold any time. And our ghost towns here are asphalt and concrete with boarded up windows

Congrats on the IHP and relics. That root through the bottle top is a neat piece too.
