    Your button shows two Old-English Script letters below a British royal crown, so t is definitely one of the varieties of British Army "Named Regiment" buttons. I'm not sure about the identify of the letters... perhaps they are an I and a T. I was only able to eliminate some letters. I searched for a matchup at a webpage showing British Army named-regiment buttons but had no luck.

    Perhaps you'll have better luck by doing a search of the British Army buttons at the United Kingdom Detector Finds Database (UKDFD).

    AFTER-POSTING UPDATE: A better, well-lit photo shows the crown is not a British ROYAL crown, so please ignore the two paragraphs above.

    If your gilted (goldplated) brass button is a 2-piece button, it can date anytime from the 1830s to the present. I think yours is from the latter-1800s to early-1900s.

    AFTER-POSTING UPDATE: Another new photo was posted, showing the button's back, revealing it is a 1-piece button... so the paragraph above is now irelevant.

    According to the site below that backmark, R Bushby St Martins Lane London, dates from 1806-1824. However, I can't speak to the accuracy of the site. Online sources Do sometimes have errors:

    Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

    Wonderful find Here's one like it - classified with the Livery Buttons. No definite ID but "Possibly a button of the Baron's Percy"

    Livery Button - UK Finds Database -

    A die-stamped two-piece monogrammed livery button with separate brazed/soldered wire shank; circular; flat with outer rim; initials JP, with the coronet of a Baron above; backmarked, R BUSHBY ST MARTINS LANE LONDON; gilt.



    The backmark dates the manufacture of the button to the period circa 1800-1824.

    Your post with a well-lit photo appeared here while I was typing my previous reply, so I didn't see it until after I posted. Now that I've seen the well-lit photo, I can see that the crown on it is not the British Royal crown... so I've deleted that part of my previous reply.

    Also... your newest photo, showing its back, reveals that it is a 1-piece button with a raised-lettering backmark. That moves its time-period forward, from about 1790 into the 1830s... which fits with the UKDFD's dating of its manufacturer as being in business from about 1800 to 1824.
