    Unlikely find

    Not wanting to travel too far afield, I visited a nearby athletic field in hopes of harvesting some clad. Certainly hoping for silver or something interesting.
    The first hole produced a penny which rang 25-27 on the Equinox. Along side that plug was a deep 20-24.
    I figured another penny and was amazed to find a large flat button.
    The balance of the finds were modern with the possible exception of a small hem weight?
    When cleaned up the button revealed a pattern which appears to be floral.
    I'd like to definitively date it, my references don't show a shank attachment like it.
    It is bronze/brass/copper?
    Thanks for looking.
    Be well!Attachment 1815110Click image for larger version.
