    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?

    While I have aimed in my postings to be irenic and conciliatory, rather than polemic, I have yet endeavored to set forth the
    truth, let it favor or impugn whom it might. Any notice of misrepresentations or mistakes occurring in these prose will be most thankfully received
    by the author.

    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
