    Very nice find. That is a great looking button. I agree with Icewing. The 1 R stands for First Regiment.

    Thank you very much! I am wondering if it was normal to be in the navy as the first war of 1812 button was a navy button and also be in artillery ? Or if I have two different persons buttons?

    Very nice finds! The only 1812 artifact I have is a cannonball from the March, 1813 British bombardment of Lewes, Delaware. The British were demanding the locals supply the fleet blockading the Delaware Bay with beef and vegetables, which was refused, resulting in a 22 hour long attack with cannons and Congreve rockets (their first ever use in war). This resulted in only one dead chicken and one wounded pig, and some damaged buildings. One still has a cannonball lodged in it's foundation to this day. A commemoration of that event some years ago was attended by a representative of the British navy, who joked it proved the accuracy of the British navy that they could hit a chicken at a thousand yards!

    Doesn't get much better. Verifiably very old and so specific!
