    Awesome button from atop a hill

    Me and my cousin (my2hands) were detecting on top a hill in historic shepherdsville ky, and we were getting some decent signals when boom my cousin nails this extra rich gold guilted button.... It says JAMES FASSITT & Co. / ***EXTRA***RICH / PHILADELPHIA -------
    If anyone knows anything about the year or info on this button I would love to hear it!!!!

    Couldn't find much on the company. But as a educated guess... 1840-1890.

    So It Might Actually Be From Around 1820S Era. Good find Indeed. I Love Finding Flat Buttons

    Great finds, I'm sure some old coins are somewhere around the area of the buttons.

    Nice Finds! Button is probably 1810-1830s or 40s. Those gilting-related words (exra rich, extra fine, superfine, rich orange colour, etc etc) usually indicate that it's a civilian flat button made in the specified time period. Congrats on the 3-center can't wait to see a pic!

    I found a flat one piece button with "extra rich London". Someone ID'd it as a livery button dating 1820-1840. They used the "extra rich" "extra gilt" "super" describing words to suggestive sell their buttons between those dates. Nice find!
