    Help with Navy variant button

    Hoping for some help identifying the exact variant of this Navy cuff I dug a few weeks ago. One piece cuff and was figuring British variety but cant seem to find the exact match. Dug in Lowcountry SC.
    Thanks for any help.

    Not much help with most of my sources back home, but could you show us a picture of the back. Construction will help narrow the field

    Here you go. Time frame is not so much of the question but just if anyone knows particular variant. My reference material does not have one listed with rope coming over from left side and specifically stopping so short on the anchor stock.

    Closest I could find! It is NA 17 C. In the Albert book of buttons. That's the best I could find. Click image for larger version.

    That's the closest I can find at least. On yours, it looks like the bottom half of the rope is cut off, and I can't find any others like it.
