    Button ID from 1800's dirt basement

    I found this button in my dirt basement. House was built in 1800 (Maine). It's pretty huge. This was my first ever find with a metal detector.

    Welcome. It's a very nice button, due to no backmark probably last quarter of the 18th century to 1st quarter of the 19th century. They were huge back then.
