Hyer, has been relic hunting for over 42 years and owns Metal Detecting Online in Magnolia Springs, Alabama. In an interview about the find he said that at the time “I was using the new wireless XP DEUS metal detector. I had only used the XP DEUS two other days prior to this hunt.”  Hyer went on to say “All of my fiends were using top end detectors from other major manufacturers. The XP DEUS continued that day to produce two more very rare colonial period buttons”

The George Washington button was recently authenticated by Robert Silverstein of George Washington Buttons in New Windsor, NY. It is one of only a handful of its kind known in existence. Hyer said “Less rare buttons, in worse condition, have sold in the past for above $10,000.00″.
