View attachment 2134440 View attachment 2134441 View attachment 2134442 Nice button! I believe that is a military corps button from the war of 1812… I don’t know much more than that, except I’m pretty sure I t has been posted on Tnet before…probably multiple times before. The first time I saw the button, I fell in love with the design, timeless and classic! As far as any specific military unit/regiment etc I have no clue, but someone on here will help you out! Good luck!👍🏼

1814 to 1820 1 piece artillery corps...nice one
As stated by Villagenut, it is a 1 piece artillery corps button, the size at around 14+ to 15+ mm makes it a "cuff" button, if it were a "coat" button it would be around 20+ to 21+ mm.
