    Three buttons and one's a puzzle

    Dug three buttons today and the first two I've seen before:

    A General Services button - Click image for larger version.

ID:	1620550 and a very beaten up flat button with TREBLE GILT backmark and some letter remnants about the rim - Click image for larger version.

    The last button dug appears modern and it is made of aluminum, thus the decay. It has a script "n" on the front - Click image for larger version.

    Yossarian: Ok, let me see if I've got this straight. In order to be grounded, I've got to be crazy. And I must be
    crazy to keep flying. But if I ask to be grounded, that means I'm not crazy anymore, and I have to keep flying.
