    It's definitely not a button. Perhaps an early drawer pull?

    Just a guess

    I would say a leather rivet probably from a saddle or other horse tack.

    Only the star pattern? Looks like an arc on the 1st image. No doubt a rivet style base.

    It doesn't have "Made In China" imprinted in it.

    After I looked at it again I realized what it is .It is a vintage overall button that is riveted to the material to hold the suspenders or close the top pockets. Overalls would definitely be something a miner would wear.I knew it was familiar and considering that I wear overalls I knew it was real familiar.I couldn't find who had the star as their logo.

    I'm looking at the patina and the style of the rivet. Seems like a nice heavy patina that would take a long time to get that way, especially in a dry state like arizona. But it truly is a guess, could very well be wrong and it could be early 1900's, but I dont think so.
