Have read that graves in the Crimea have been dug up in the past by people using metal detectors to find buttons and other metal items. In fact I bought five 93rd Highlander buttons all dug finds from the Crimea. Later I realized finding more than one or two buttons it's likely they dug up a grave. I believe their govt. has passed law to stop this grave looting practice.
