    He definitely lists the US Military issued buttons from oldest to newest for each branch of service. I don't think these militia buttons can be dated to US Military button regulations, so he added them at the end of the GI section.

    Makes sense, so it's a GI-67 18teens-1820 U.S. Militia one piece, 21mm bronze button.

    Are these pretty rare or ?

    That is a very nice early military button. What a great find (yes, especially so for California) !
