    Is this a Tombac Botton ??

    I have been trying to date a site I have been hunting lately. So far appears most of my finds date from early to late 1800's. Its the earlier history,,, that I don't run across to ofter here in Illinois. Tombac button or not and what time period is it from? Thanks for your help in advance!!!

    Tombac usually will be slicker and grey in appearance.
