Got out today on the homestead and among the junk, found these three buttons.
Isn't it great what you can find on the internet to figure things out.

A reproduction of a French Livery Button (first two pictures) denoting a Duke, a real 17th century button (last photo) appears to be brass.
I couldn't find the repro on-line, maybe someone knows where it came from.

I think your unidentified button used to have a cloth covering.
That could be, we thought maybe it came from a sweater.
Thanks for the input.
