Hi all, found this metal detecting the other day with my uncle and was hoping someone could tell me more about it. We haven’t been able to find much on it. I’m guessing it’s maybe 1830-50s but I really have no idea. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, GL&HH

It is very similar to Albert gi51fv - but not exact. That makes it around 1812. Maybe a little after. By 1830 most uniform buttons were 2-piece.

DC, I looked at that button but it is one piece. The OP stated his is two piece. To me that means it would date post 1830s but there are no two piece buttons in Albert's that match it.
