    Continental Army Camp - Solid cast button with backmark - Repro? Recognize this?

    I found this at at a Continental Army encampment.
    Solid. Cast. Heavy.

    Appears in too good of shape to be old pewter.

    Has a backmark that looks like maybe " PRH " over " L M ".

    I'm guessing modern button. Maybe a reenacter's button from the 20th century?

    Anyone recognize the back mark?

    Thanks!

    Thanks. I'm surprised even the quality pewter could survive.
    I reached out to Don.
    I'll let you know if / what he responds.
    Thanks!

    Update: The B & H backmark is from a British Hession reenactors group from around 1970.
    Now we know.

    Glad you got a definitive answer, sucks it's a reenactors button, but you'll (we'll) know for future reference. Here's hoping next time you'll find a real one....
