    You’re correct about the name of the names, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of solid information (in Tice’s books) about the specific individuals, their location or specific dates. But sometime in the 1830-50 range.
    Nice amount of gilt left on it!

    Agree "Golden Age" button. 1830's - 40's. Sandland seems to be a common name in the industry. Nothing really on EAVES.

    The style and stippled background remind me of Benedict & Burnham buttons from the same era. "Basket of Flowers" was a popular motif.

    Imagine 8 or 9 of those on the front of your jacket. They would certainly make a statement.

    crazy to keep flying. But if I ask to be grounded, that means I'm not crazy anymore, and I have to keep flying.

    You will chasing your tail around a tree on this one. There were a lot of manufacturers, both sides of the pond. And not a lot of records.
