1789 George Washington Inaugural Button

Art Knapp February 11, 2020

A beautiful J Harold Cobb 17F George Washington Inaugural. The site stopped giving up signals but I would always start my hunts at this beautiful site, then move on. Ten minutes into my hunt I came down along the briars and swung into a spot I was swinging all over the previous year. There was a small tree backed up against the briars and I managed to get my coil behind it and got a beautiful solid signal. I flipped over a good size plug and pointed out of the hole a large dandy button, the back was facing me and I thought after many dandy buttons with no eagle I thought here we go again. When I turned it over I went from 61 years old back to 12. What a delight finding this GW. Keep swinging and thank you Whites. Art
