Calabash Digger just dug the most amazing piece of history, and being the subject depicted on his cuff button/cuff link, John Adams, is my GGG Grandfather, I am blown away by his recovery.  Here are some of the picks he sent me to share:

What a historical button to find.
The fact that it is in such remarkable condition with an intact shank is amazing.

HOLY COW! I am at a loss for words. That is simply fantastic-a find that is going to be hard to beat!

Rob-that is just awesome that you are related to John Adams.

After reading this thread, and seeing this over-the-top button, I think I need a sedative!

Thank you for sharing this one!
