Was Checking Out a New Claim Area

Recommended Posts

Didn't find gold where I was sure there should be but did find the unusual ... at least to me ... button. I assume it was from a Depression Miner's bibb overalls given the overall condition and oxidation of the back of the button. I haven't done a lot of investigative work on this company but I have never heard of it until I uncovered the button. If anyone has info on 'Crown Overall' please post it here ... Thanks.

With a quick google search I just found this company was started by an immigrant to the USA shortly after 1900 and was in business for about 30 years. This particular button looks like on I saw on ebay that was dated 1918 so it predates the depression miners by a few years.
