On this PAGE a bit past halfway down, will be found a button, with the number "53".
It was from the 53rd foot regiment of General Burgoyne's British troops. They fought at Ft Ticonderoga, as well as Mount Independence in Vermont.
I would think it likely that this belt plate is from the same unit, and was probably claimed as a war prize by a Continental regular who took it home.
