    A Button and a thingamabob

    The button is pretty well wasted. There is some gilt left on the back and I was able to figure out some of the letters. What I'm trying to do is get an approximate age. If anyone can help, good, if not, no biggie.

    The words are "TREBLE GILT" along one side and the only letter I could make out on the top was that whatever it said ended in the letter "K".

    The thingamabob, I have no clue.

    Thanks for the info and link, Timekiller. It does help. I thought it might be that old, just wasn't sure.

    i agree. most of the "treble gilt" buttons i've found are from early/mid 1800s

    I'm pretty sure that your thingamabob is morel likely a whatchamacallit. Monty

    Some aluminum jelly on that button may clean it up better.
