Hi all. Finaly found some time to ge out for a few hours with the Nox 800.
Found some old buttons that turned out to be Best Ring Edge buttons C 1910 to 1924.
A .25 cal Stevens pistol bullet shell. A .32 cal pistol bullet. $2 coin and a pair of secateurs laying on the surface.
Funny thing anout the buttons there were 8 all in an area 2.5 feet by 1 foot area 4 inches deep. Oh and variouse other junk.

Maybe some kids raided mums button jar then got scared of being busted so they buried them..... but I like the idea of them getting ripped off in someone's haste to get to second base better!
