    Royal Provincial (RP) Loyalist Button

    In rough shape but a Royal Provincial Loyalist Button, RP with a crown above. I'm afraid to clean any more its so brittle. This site keeps producing great relics.Click image for larger version.

    You have saved a Rev War pewter button and now it's fate is in your hands. You may already know this, but it will continue to flake away unless you coat it with something. I have used a thin coat of clear fingernail polish in the past and have also used Elmer's Glue diluted with water. You can practice on any old pewter spoon pieces you have laying around until you find a system that you like.

    We find a lot of crumbly pieces of pewter flatware handles. With my eyesight, I might have put that one in the wrong pocket. Good save!

    You just saved a piece of history. You just don't see RP buttons every day! Great job. I have used lite coats of paraffin wax on very brittle buttons with success.
