    Silver Button ID..UPDATE Green Check To Lucas.



    All I can tell you about this button is that it has what looks like Duke down one side, and the figure looks 1700s any help on it would be greatly appreciated

    The back is hollow, there's nothing to see that can help

    William, Duke of Cumberland... a very popular person as of April, 1746. Unless you are Scottish?

    See the Conquering Hero, Sweet William, the flower, etc. etc.

    Wonderful bit of history there.

    Re: Silver Button ID

    Thanks to Crusader for reading it. After that, it was a no-brainer. Prince William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland was hugely popular after the Battle of Culloden. There were hundreds of prints, commemoratives, etc.

    In Scotland, he is still known as "Stinking Billy."

    Re: Silver Button ID..UPDATE Green Check To Lucas.



    Lucas was spot on with the ID I just had confirmation it is indeed a Button, probably cuff, Commemorating William Duke of Cumberland, the depiction as Lucas said similar to that of his success at Culloden struck on some of his Medals

    Weldone Cru date was right and a cufflink
