identical buttons...30 miles apart!

Post by HolzHammer » Tue Jun 12, 2018 6:52 pm

Evening all,
Hope all well - four days ago the only thing I found in a very large pasture field in North Devon was the top button in the photo; today I found an identical one ( but in better nick) 30miles west of the first field! I love the pattern; is it a typical Devonian type the well heeled locals favoured?!

Maybe there was a bit of walking or horse travel to do from here to there for the button owner?

Maybe, there is a route that may be established for a travelling purpose?

I would research the button pattern if you can to see if it is symbolic or maybe a tunic button.

A photo of the underside would be useful as there may be a makers mark.

Excellent finds and thanks for letting us have a look!

Although, I enjoyed the walk with my Bounty Hunter Tracker IV!

Looks like the same maker too. Very nice buttons and certainly better than any I’ve ever found ::g

It’s quite something for the same person
To find them in seperate places..
Will start to get spooky-
If you find another one in the other direction.

Especially if they were lost by the same person, that would be too weird.
