Old Button was created by nlartist
Here is an old button found close to an old fur trade site dating back to the late 1700's early 1800's.

I also found three crude arrowheads here, and a short distance away, a lead pendant shaped like a buffalo head, unfortunately that was stolen in a break-in.

A few hundred meters away in the same area, along a trail , I found a brass buttplate from a Northwest trader rifle which was unfortunately stolen as well.

Unfortunately a few years ago when I lived in Western Canada my house was broken into and my little treasure box was discovered and stolen. That is a whole story of itself.

Fortunately my detector and many other valuables were not taken.

I had an alarm system installed shortly after.

A friend of mine had some silver finds taken from his nightstand drawer when a burglar hit his home. The lesson was to move finds collections to a non-obvious room of the house where no burglar would think to look for valuables. :( They say that the first place burglars look for valuables is the nightstand dresser. In his case, lesson learned too late. Very sorry to hear about this.

I was quite careless at the time, I am fortunate that not more was taken and that there was no damage to my house.

I had 100 bottles of wine in my basement at the time, none of it was touched.

I learnt my lesson and got an alarm system.

One of my biggest losses was a military medal that belonged to my great grandfather.
