    Marine Button, and 2 others

    Hello,
    DeArmitt found this Marine Button on this weekends outing. I can't find it listed in Albert's Book but may have missed it. The Backmark is hard to see "R W Robinson Extra Rich" The mark is Early to mid 1800's I think.
    The next item is this thing that kind of has a knob on top. It's 2 1/2long by 1 inch wide at the knob, and has a pin running though it. May have been attached to wood.
    Lastly is this thing with a hole in the bottom. At first I thought a lipstick tube but the hole in the buttom reminds me of a Burnside Cartridge. It's little over 11/2 inches long and a little less than a half inch wide where the hole is

    Any thoughts would be appreciated
    Thanks

    The thing with the ball on it is a Concord hames topper.

    Here are a couple of photos that should help. Yours would be No. 12 in the second photo.

    That is a neat button, but like you, I have not been able to find a match in my books, either.

    In the last picture, your bullet cartridge? It may be a Gallager carbine cartridge. Here are some buttons like yours. http://www.fastbrowsersearch.com/res...r&fbsc=mtwb2ng
