    Hmm, generally “plated” would imply silver plated. I would have expected it to say “treble gilt” if it were gold that were applied. Maybe that word isn’t plated?
    Either way I’d bet it dates to the 1820’s-50’s.

    Iíd have to think itís silver plated thatís taken on a goldish hue, just due to the wording. Based on the size it seems it would be considered a vest button, and may or may not be considered a Jacksonian button, popular in the 1820ís-30ís... itís at least related if it isnít considered one.
