12 hr night hunt.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hope your dodging the heat. Up here in northern Nevada we cant handle the high 90s very well haha. So the boys and I have been going out at night to beat the heat. Friday night my oldest boy and I headed out. We got out to our spot at 8:30 pm and it was nice. Low 80s and after the sun was down for a bit we had 64 degrees all night. Cameron did pretty good after we found our new spot. He found what looks to be a bridle concho that is silver coated. And it's really heavy. He also found a couple really cool mid 1860s buttons and a first for us, a really old eagle button. He was really excited about that one. No coins this trip but i think this new spot will turn some over to us. I found just rusty stuff. Not even a speci. We finally left at 8:40 the next morning when it reached 85 lol. Not much but we had a blast.

Good for you guys to get out. Nice finds on the buttons and other stuff :)
That shovel on the left was messing with my mind until I went to full size to look at it :nutty:

Nice finds.

I found buttons similar to those when I was detecting in Nevada. Must have been a lot of vets headed west after the civil war.

We have found several anchor buttons but thats our first eagle. And it looks old compared to the ones i have found online.

Nice finds, does the eagle button have readable back/maker's marks?

Nothing at all. Only the loop bent over. It is a 2 piece button, but there is no wording or writing anywhere on the back. We can't find one like this on the web. At least the sites I have looked at anyway.

In the photo it seems to have a rim, is that right?

It's definitely a General Service button.
