    Militaires Equipments button age help needed Please

    Got out a little after work today. We went back to the area we were in on sunday when we found the 1793 LC. Not far from where I found the LC I found this button. Can someone help with the age or time frame.
    I believe it is brass. It does not hang on a magnet. Very simply made stamped from a single sheet of metal.

    Our team of 2 was assembled in 1976 and we are still swinging and digging together. I cannot go if she cannot ride shotgun. Now we just have to wait for the grandkids to get big enough to join us.

    I think we had one posted here before. A charter member can search. I think its French and could be as old as WWI.


    ADDED: Im not sure now, the spelling of equipments may not be French. Its a common button used by a lot of countries for many years but the French spell it equipements.

    I found one similar about a year ago. The research I did at the time led to believe it was from (I think) WWII. French. Was from bread bag () Again, this was about a year ago....
    Found it - button off of what was called a musette - here's a link- http://www.reenactor.net/units/151ri/8-une.html

    Sure
    I dug mine in a park where I've dug quite an assortment of coinnage (lower canada tokens, large cents, 1884 US nickel). There's also a small monument commemorating soldiers from the neighbourhood who served in WWI and WWII. My avatar (the button) was recovered from the same park....

    Hey everybody, I found a button quite similar to the above ones BUT mine doesn't have a star but more like a diamond shape with a dot inside.
    I found it in Luxembourg, obviously, I was thinking about the bread bag theory but all the buttons I've seen on the net do clearly have a star and not a diamond shape which let me think that maybe this one is older than WWII?
    Anybody with an idea? thanks.
