    An interesting button.

    Here is an interesting button, I am not sure if it is military. It is gold plated I think, any ideas?

    If there's no dirt under your nails, you're not trying hard enough.

    It may be an 'R. (Richard) Robinson & Co.' which operated from 1834 to 1848. They made almost exclusively for millitery and state militia.
    Let history be your treasure map .

    I can't find that exact backmark in any of my reference books. Going by the raised lettering on a one piece button I would date it no later than the 1820s. In my humble opinion it is a civilian button and a very nice one at that.
