    I believe the Loyalist buttons were a walking horse.

    ToastedWheatie thanks for the first pic with the article. that is a exact match front and back.
    Thanks Whyme for cropping the pic. and thanks to all for the likes and comments.
    I'm about 30 miles north of Boston but find very little Military related paraphernalia around here..
    There were very limited troop movement here.

    Now that we know what the back looks like, I expect these things are pretty rare and I think the condition is exceptional. BANNER!

    I do see that dragoons went west for indian issues pre 1850, but didn't know they went as far as you. Did you find dragoon buttons in Idaho?

    Thank Reanm8er for the thumbs up. Thanks to all for the comments. there were 2 trails that split . We went down one looking for a cellar hole
    and cut thought the woods and came up the other trail. I had dug 2 wheats before. Pure luck i hit it. Most of my buttons are flat , very few even have designs
    on them. when this popped out i had a feeling it was a keeper. Still smiling .

    That’s even nicer blown up, that article was eye opening as well. I own a Smith carbine (civil war) manufactured in 1863 and issued to the 1st Massachusetts cavalry, huh, whooda thunk
