Found this button detecting in my yard today. I’m new to detecting and super excited. Can anyone here shed some light on its origins?

Likely made in England, probably Birmingham. Large numbers were imported. The "Superfine Standard" is a designation for the button's plating. There was a bewildering variations in those designations using words like the ones on yours and "Gilt", "Orange" and many others.

Yes, it's British & more a Quality Mark than Makers Mark. Early 1800s.
