    Check out British customs button.

    Found it today. At first I thought it was a flat button. Just used a toothpick. Can’t believe it still has some gilt. How in the world did it end up in south Louisiana. Geaux Tigers!!!Click image for larger version.

    Wow, super cool, and yes, for a find like that one of the most fun parts is wondering “how did this get here?”. I like the theories proposed so far!

    Believe me, I am aware of the Battle of New Orleans. I don’t think this button is a military button but I’m not sure.

    It's not a Military Button only a Govt. one. The time period fits, but of course there are a thousands other scenario's as well.
