    "P" Button Id needed. SOLVED! POLICE BUTTON!

    Hi all, I have a question concerning a button. I was told it was a Pennsylvania Railroad Button but I cannot find any like it. Worthpoint had a pin with a similar P on it but not exactly. The backmark reads "SUPERIOR QUALITY" with stars between the words. This is all of the info I have on this button. If anyone can tell me if this is a RR button, I would appreciate it. If anyone can give me an age range and/or manufacturer, I would appreciate that also.

    Thanks,
    Doug

    I would just be guessing late 1800's-early 1900s. They are still made today with a different back. https://tandtuniforms.com/shop/catal...ipg2s9gecu0k12

    Thank you for the ID BigCy! I am going to go a head a green check this one. I think this is the fastest green check for my question to date!

    Thanks,
    Doug

    I found a button just like yours but, with a different backmark. It is not nearly as nice as yours but I like it. It has a "Chas Reubens & Co. Chic" backmark and it dates from 1883-1911. I think it is probably from the early years because all the other finds have been dated to the 1880s or earlier.

    Here's a link to date them according to whats on the back. Look carefully and pay attention to small details. Some look almost identical. http://www.relicman.com/buttons/Butt...uryButtonCo000
