Thanks! It sounded like all of the other beer cans I’ve been digging. Just goes to show you gotta dog it all!

Nice 1st Regiment Light Artillery That style dates 1808 to 1821 per Alberts. I'm not surprised to see it turn up in Maine, as there was activity along the Canadian border.
By the way, regiments of foot were infantry regiments.

I don’t have the button book. Does it tell the values for the buttons? If so, what is the value for this one?

The book doesn't have values. You can probably Google it and find what they are selling for. I would guess $30-$50

Nice button. Based on the pictures, looks like Albert AY 44, Light Artillery, 1808-1821

Excellent button find. Not surprised that it was found in Maine.

Albert's book has been THE reference for decades.

Congrats!
