Dug Revolutionary War cast pewter USA intertwined small size coat button. It has been cleaned and then coated with polyurethane. It has edge loss and overall ground wear. It is in similar condition to many other dug pewter Rev War buttons. The shank is missing. The USA is readable and the button is priced accordingly. I have seen much worse. This button was dug on private property with permission in the Hudson Highlands.
