Found this button on my wife’s grandparents home place, it’s a small button the size that would be on maybe a shirt cuff or coat cuff. Her uncle work for the railroad all his working career as a train engineer we think it may have come from a shirt or coat he would have worn. Maybe someone would know more about this button would be glad to hear your thoughts.

Its so cool to be able to link it to family like that. I spend half my day wondering who owned the objects I'm finding.

That is actually a work clothes/overall button, of which there were many.
