    Re: botton id

    I'd like to see a photo of the back.


    This is an interesting item... The style of oval on the front is similar to the flat, one-piece eagle militia buttons of the 1830s... The design is similar around the oval to the set of "dots" of graduated sizes on the three cent silver coin.


    I don't know what to think of this one yet. I'd like to see a photo of the back first.
