      I dug this button recently with the teknetics t2 se using the 5 " coil in factory default disc mode with 4 tone along an old sidewalk strip. The iron back is very corroded. it was a terrible bouncy signal but something about it said dig me and l was happy l did . l think it might date from 1880 - 1920 but I'm not sure. any info would be much appreciated .

      Found this what looks like pewter head with a gargoyle on top and a strange old buckle with a glass front. Think the buckle used to have a photo or painting behind the glass. Other is an obliterated IH penny but was a good find for the day as it was 10" down mixed in iron near some recent digholes someone missed. Pays to be patient when working these beat up grounds.

      Went to Oregon on Saturday and scored one of these babies. I don't find them often (less than 10 in 40+ yrs of MD'ing) but when I do, it puts a smile on my face. Pay attention to those little odd finds so you don't throw them out. I'd love to see some of the ones you other hunters have saved, so please show some pics.  I'm sure the Aussies have a few as well.  Last pic shows the weight.

      Was stomping around the old cellar hole area and came across old pony horseshoe about 5" wide, nice bronze oar lock towards the lake, a domed shaped low silver content plate that I guess is from some pottery and has a nice pattern on it and lastly a military button that I thought was brass but is gold plated? Button is just under 5/8" dia, pretty small. Back is missing the loop but there is writing but that is filled in. I am a bit scared to clean it more. Has hand with sword on front on grooved background. Stars going completely around and some writing that I don't want to damage trying to clean. Not sure if anyone has come across a button like this before.

      My good friend RJ was scouting an area to detect and his eye catches something not so normal.  Very cool video and heck of a history save.

      Check out the condition of this 2000 year Roman dagger when found and then after nine months of restoration work.
