Nice find for certain!
How deep was the button?
What detector were you using?
Where is "Brick's Camp" and is it located on public land?

I hear you, Al! I have a nice collection of "Pull Tabs".
Some date back to 1962.  ;D

The buttons and coins that I find in that area are around 8" deep.  For relic Hunting I use a Fisher 1266 detector.  T
