This button I found about a week ago with my Fisher 1266x. It has a palm tree with a snake at the bottom or snakes, no back mark. The size of a nickel. PLEASE HELP!!!

Yes the palmetto is associated with South Carolina. Can we see the back?

I didn't see it in Tice's book. Keep it for sure. Knowing what other kinds of items were found with it may help date it.

NexGen,the reason we ask all these questions is we need info to ID.The size is important,as is where found and if any other items were found in the same vicinity.A coin such as dime next to your button can give a size comparison.A measurement with a good ruler is better.A better focused picture would greatly help.Help us out here.

Yes, It is an extremely cool button. I know someone who might know, I'll do a screen shot and send him a pic and see if he knows.

In one aspect it looks like a South Carolina State button, but the more I look, the more confusing it is. I can't find an example of one that the branches extend that far down.

So I'm at a loss.......Which isn't all that uncommon!
