The mosquito bites were worth it.

The digging is over but every now and then when I go out to the yard to do some weeding something new is just sitting on top of the soil. I hear that when it rains things rise to the top...but I only half believe it. Yesterday I saw this button, stuck it in my pocket (thinking it was Levis or something) and forgot all about it.
Tonight I cleared as much corrosion from it as I could and saw that it reads Brooklyn Police!

Apparently before 1898 Brooklyn had it's own police force before really joining New York City, and these are old uniform buttons...
