    Another cast pewter button

    Yesterday, I worked an early site that contains mostly mid 1700s artifacts. The site has given up two 26th British Regiment buttons, One 1753 piller dollar, a few Georges, 1 Charles, two Spanish pewter coin buttons, and about 75 unmarked buttons. I'm wondering if any of you button guys can ID this 16mm one piece cast pewter button..... Happy digging!!!

    Nice group of finds. Looking at the pewter, nothing military comes to mind. Probably a civilian pattern. Is that a rosette next to the arrowhead?

    Next to the arrowhead is a very heavy 30 mm cast brass button with an iron shank. Above that is half of a beltClick image for larger version.
