Old Metal Button Find

Ground Detector Blog: Old Metal Button Find

Was back at my new site, which has become the only place i have been metal detecting for a few weeks now. I decided to metal detect a part of this woods that i haven't checked yet. I found quite a few items, most were just pieces of Iron and different metals. I did find an old penknife that looked like something from the 1960's, but when i took it home i could not clean it, it had corroded too badly, so i chucked it away.

While i was still in the woods i came accross a signal that was erradic! It was about 4 inches deep, and after digging up the dirt i could not find the item, even though it was somewhere in the dug up dirt. I eventually found the item, and it was an old metal button. It looks like it's off an old item of clothing from the 1800's or early 1900's.
