Found this scuba diving a spring on Choctawhatchee River in South Alabama while fanning for Native American artifacts. I don't have a metal detector, but find alot of gold and silver jewelry, old silver coins and the like while looking for lithics. Back of button is stamped Crumpton * Phila * around the shank. Best I can tell it is from an Infantry uniform circa 1812-1815...?

Looks like the water did an excellent job of preserving that infantry button! If your finding stuff like this you might want to get a detector and look over that site some. Great button!

Brian,
Thanks for the suggestion, re:metal detector. There is no telling what I miss when diving some of these sites because I don't have a detector. I am "fanning" silt. Guess I would need one built for underwater...
It really is a nice button...I was stoked when I realized what it was!
