Iit is very hard to see but you can clearly see some design and also the letter “O” in like the US currency Font. There is some sort of writing I can not make out what so ever. Just trying to get info if anyone has seen something like this before

I'm guessing it's an overalls/work clothing button. But I'm just guessing. I can't make anything out of the front...

You should be able to get the rest of that corrosion off. The design is still strong under it. I think I see a cross. You get the rest of that off and it will be an easier ID.

I am thinking the design is very close to this design here after taking a look again. Thanks. How do you clean something up like this anyway? I tooth brushed it that’s it.
