    Re: Early Enginners Button?

    I think this will be eventually solved. Someone will recognize it or see it in a book.

    I agree with daroofa its most likely Eberhard Manufacturing Saddlery Hardware. Horse hardware makes sense. If we could open that book, we may see exactly where it came from. Anyone care to purchase it?

    I dont think its a button because we dont see any remains of the backside piece.

    Re: Early Enginners Button?

    it sort of reminded me of a label or display item that would of be glued to something like a trunk, metal plating, or something, what it would of been glued to though is anyones guess.

    But something along the lines that would of hidden marks like rivets or something.

    Thats what it resembled to me when you set it down flat.

    Ill go along with that.There are NO rivets or tack welds on it, so being glued onto something sounds right.There is no residue on mine but not to say it (the adhesive) couldnt have deteriorated over the years in the ground.

    Re: Early Enginners Button?

    I think its between that and perhaps a pop tab/cap off of something.

    I dont know when the earliest metal like lids/caps/tops was introduced, I dont know what it would be on. It still could of been like I said and it be used to cover up rivets or something and was popped off.

    This is based off the fact of all the pictures seen, it looks as if these things needed to be pryed off, they all show this dent as if thats what happened.

    It also kind of reminds me of wooden stove doo hickeys as I call them or something on the old metal pots and kettles also, basically nothing more than being a makers mark of the product.

    Mine is the only one that is PERFECTLY flat as a coin is. I do agree with a makers mark. ie: hand saw medallions or something of that nature perhaps.

    Re: Early Enginners Button?

    I have been lurking around this site for awhile now and just had to respond to this topic. After reading the thread - it occurred to me that the reason the item has what looks to be a pry mark on one side is that it may possibly have been a cover for some sort of adjustment screw/bolt and had to be pried off in order to make the adjustment. And having been around farms and farmers - a typical farmer, once having removed the cover may have chosen not to replaced the cover OR possibly, once removed, the cover simply may not have stayed in place and fell off.

    This is an old thread but I agree. I was digging through my warehouse looking for antiques to sell and I pulled out an old wood level. Could these be the covers to replace the bubble on a level? It just the right size and explains the pry mark.

    I have an 1996 patented level like the one pictured. My level is cracked and Im thinking of prying out the cover or plug to replace it anyway. Does anyone know the best way to remove these brass plugs? What do you think?
