Oh, looks like you changed the size too. Yeah, 30mm might be a bit big for a cufflink. Maybe tie tack?

An old pinback button or single stud pinback maybe.

Well the size grew a tad suddenly :laughing7:
My silver cuff links measure 12.30-17.50
The brass ones are 9.71-15.74
So you're recovery seems too big for a cuff link
Liking it a lot though a top shelf recovery for sure. :headbang:

Is there a small hole near the left end of image #2?

Yeah, sorry guys, I had the size wrong originally When I uploaded the brighter photos I realized I had typed it wrong. I was just looking at a book my Dad has of Civil war relics (Sherman ordered this town to be burnt, so I figured it could be from the war), and while not in the book, I do think you may be right, that it is some type of pin or tie tack. Whatever it is, It's pretty darn cool. Thanks for your help!
