Re: Button ID help

I agree mid1900's but think it might be a collar stud because of the back.
No offense to anyone but I hate when someone calls someone else's finds junk or worthless as it might be junk to one person but priceless to the person that dug it. I've have a few things that are basically junk but are special to me because of where or who I was with when I dug them.

I wish we could read the writing. It would narrow it down.

I hadnt realized it was made by Scovill. Can you post another pic? Here are some links that may help date it. Its probably SCOVILL MF'G CO *WATERBURY* Can you fit it with any of these? http://pw1.netcom.com/~jimyce/bm.html I believe there are typos in the link. This backmark was used up until 1965 I believe.

It may be older than mid-1900's. Here are some examples of collar studs. I couldnt see it well and it appeared to me to be overalls.

From looking at it I would say early to mid 1900's. The other stuff is older though so it possible the stud is older than I think. Hopefully someone will know for sure.

Go back and read it again. Just in case you miss it the second time around.... When there is a "send it to me", it has a hidden meaning. It means he really likes it.
