Found this today near an old well near VA line in NC. Missing the makers mark of the two-piece. Appears to be 1800s naval button, but not finding many exactly like it. Found one repro that said it was 1820-1830s naval button. Any ideas?

If it has a rust out back, I'm going with 20th C Blazer/Fashion Button. Seen many similar on here.

Nice find, I couldn’t find anything to help date it but I found some images and it looks like they had two different back styles.
