    Neat button finds, I like the 'Poll' option here.
    no room on #2 for the word superior, likely 'SUPERFINE' another early 19th C quality mark,
    At first glance the Pic below FRONT of button (pic below) - Ornate pattern visible.


    had me thinking a 'Dished' type one piece cast pewter, which of course is Colonial era, but coloration and shank differ, I was hoping to give you the colonial thumbs up. HH to You All !!

    thanks for the reply. if you look at the spacing where the letters are, it is too much to be SUPERFINE as one word, maybe SUPER FINE as two words? even that, there would be a large space between SUPER and FINE. what do you think?

    Agreed, most likely 'Super Fine', and not 'Super Fly', that's found on buttons of a significantly later vintage
