    Need help identifying this button

    Here is a button found while metal detecting. It show a picture of a hooded man, with a beard, holding what look like playing cards. One of the cards has a diamond in the corner of it and another has a spade on it. It is made out of thin brass and is 1" to 1 1/16".

    Any information is appreicated.

    I had a thought today on this button. Has anyone heard of a card dealers button? Worn by the dealer during a card game. This button was found in an area that was used in the 1870's.
