    Its not a modern button. Its probably at least 100 years old. Nice find Allison.

    It called an Advertisement button and it was used on underwear, trousers or shoddy mens suits. Silversimon is the only one that has a site on these old 4 holed advertisement buttons but I didnt save it.

    Yes its a very good link and the only link I know of about these old utility/advertisement buttons. They were mostly used by shoddy tailors and textile makers.

    My theory is a very long time ago a English immigrant was a grounds keeper at the state mentel hospital still had cloths that he brought over from England and lost a button on his long John's while working at the hospital..
