    Could be a snap. It sure looks old.

    What is the size? Can we see a pic of the edge with something to judge thickness?

    We canít judge the past by our attitudes of today. The past existed in its own context.

    Tiny...

    I'm guessing it is a snap off a ladies glove. Turn of the 20th C.

    I believe the figure at the top of the button/snap in the first post may be a Liberty Bell. Since you are in South Jersey a Philadelphia connection is not beyond reason, yes? Are the letters a reversed "R" and a "G" or "C"?

    The symbol in the center of the other side appears to be a cup or chalice...thoughts?

    Hope I've added something of value to aid in research...Batch
