    It is a brass sleeve link button. Mud kept it from getting a patina I guess.

    an amazing old button, condition is tops
    I know finding a button like that makes you want to get out there a find a better one but you're going to have to dig many more to get better than that

    Wow, that has to be the nicest USA button I have ever seen dug! I would have just stared at it in disbelief while talking to myself if I had dug it. Congratulations, and I hope to see more of those soon.

    I thought the best or if not one of the best ever found USA buttons would be up top by now....
