    Need ID on a button

    I have seen a similar button - somewhere. That's the problem, I can't remember where.

    It is a tiny cuff button, 19th century and found on a Civil War battlefield in a house that burned in 1864. 2 piece.

    Anyone seen one of these before. No backmark.Click image for larger version.

    Interesting looking button. You might have to wait til Crusader wakes up in the morning.

    You are probably correct. I think the crown looks English.

    Sorry, not seen this type. It is a British Crown from the 19th C, but the oval bit is confusing, as that is more like a 20th C overall button.

    Thanks for the reply Crusader. It was found almost 2' down in a house burned in 1864. I do not think its military. It was so gunked up I didn't recognize what it was until I was home and had to clean it heavily with the Andre's pencils.

    smokeythecat, that is one amazing find, especially since it was 2' down. Equally impressive de-gunking!

    It may be a Victorian glove button. Here is a page from The Big Book of Buttons and a worthpoint listing showing a similar button-
