    Button ID

    Found today in an area that has produced items from the 1820s through the Civil War. Of course, it may not be that old. "Henry ___ ____ Works Philadelphia"? Or maybe not, but Philadelphia is clear.

    In any event, I'm guessing this will be obvious to someone who's seen one. Thanks in advance for any help.

    It's a saw medallion. The full text is "Henry Disston Keystone Works Philadelphia." Here's a similar non-dug example:
