    Button ID

    I found this today on a hunt. The button on the left is the one I am most curious about. Does anyone have an idea what it is and how old it may be?
    As you can see, it has 2 holes in the button where it was secured onto the clothing.

    I think the button in question is a modern fashion one made to look like a Chinese coin. What does the back look like?

    I'm thinking along the same lines as the other guys, based on it's size, likely a modern cuff or underwear button.

    Date wise... likely 1920s - 30s.
