    You are correct, that is an awesome button!
    Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. Matthew 13.

    It's an 1820's to 1830's general use artillery button which means it could have either been a federal or a state militia unit.

    These are special buttons to me as one of these was only the second I ever dug up detecting. And out of thousands of buttons I've dug to date, I've only found three so it's far from a common button. Congrats on the very good find!

    In order to further my education on button identification can you please tell me what reference you used to ID it?

    The next time try taking the picture from the end of your driveway.
    Just kidding, but do try to get a little closer next time.
    Excellent find!
    I'm the last one to judge photo quality!
