I don?t know what to think about this. It?s got so many levels to it. I found it probably ten years ago. Thought it was a blank button until recently I started cleaning all the plain ones to see if I missed anything. Sucks I cleaned it but would of never known otherwise. Anyone ever see one? I think one of the signatures in robert scot also says father of the . There?s lines and lines of script, levels of styles and depth drove me crazy trying to see exactly what was going on in it but I think it?s George as the four kings and the suits of cards , dated April 30 1789 4983AA7C-468F-4107-924C-A8320693FDFB.jpeg 1F08A5DF-946F-4240-9546-09ABFE34A2C0.jpeg 630DEF3D-600A-4513-8D8B-01E12425AD88.jpeg 8B96036E-3C9C-49EE-8ED2-150D54ED44F7.jpeg 1B10D235-72D4-4A73-BE66-432E9F58216E.jpeg 50DE2371-54C6-45AA-87D2-231062EA9256.jpeg image.jpg

Well you have a better sense in what your eyes are seeing on that flat button than mine that's for sure.
First 2 photos are too enhanced/glare to see anything, the back isn't showing anything that would be an ID

Looking at what you think it might be, and the link pictures, I would can't see the connection.

Maybe it they reused the same button to press a bunch of dies on its so smooth and stiff basically looks like it was never buried.

Take a pic when the sun is setting and side lighting it. Or try with a flashlight. Sometimes the angle brings something out.

It’s all visible when I hold it if you move it the tiniest bit it changes the whole image. So detailed . 56E51FFC-1370-4D83-967F-C739D32B71ED.jpeg D98FD208-C226-4FF3-9A30-5E1864DDE0C2.jpeg image.jpg image.jpg . I doubt I could even count how many different ones there are I can’t even move my head a little without it changing has to be over 50. It’s really not all that cleaned up either it just has so much engraving done it looks like a gold coin covered in static haha

I don’t know if this will help put it in perspective because it really is hard to see on camera for some reason but this thing chances the whole picture on it every slight turn, angle or lighting . I think I found Robert strange’s mark too. It’s so detailed .

maybe post a video of it in changing light and direction until it pops out at us....perhaps we can see it then, and we will know you are not just seeing things.

I think I see a "C" as shown in the yellow box - but then again I might be seeing things. In addition to trying the 2 really good suggestions above, describe where the lettering is. For example, the lettering is along the perimeter. The more specific the better. That way, even if we are unable to see the letters, we'll be able to picture how they're arranged in our minds.

I put #4 photo through 15 sections in the photo editing program, each level has 3-4 levels of adjustment.
I got nothing that would show anything except what is there now.

JCody, you can't see anything in the pictures you're posting, right?

If you can see something we can't while you're holding the button, ok. I'll have to accept that. But if you are seeing something in the photos you're posting then I question whether there is anything to see.

I have to confess that I also can see none of what you can see... and I also couldn't see what you could see in your other posts of heavily corroded items (where in one case, you said "some of the details on this thing are insane. But you seriously need a lot of magnification or it looks like some pitted hunk of slag").

The main picture I could. Some words this is where I tried to follow the one set of lines . It?s a grid so I might have to black out more to read it haha if no one sees anything this time I quit 6D9FE034-1355-46E1-93A6-DF446B125ACE.jpeg 18675984-347E-4F09-BAB4-0CD78FE3EF1D.jpeg 10BDE8CE-465C-4D6D-A249-D0A65A36B886.jpeg the three lines on the page are where the three lines of text are on the button it?s a pattern nomatter how I turn it those three lines are always lined up with text. No I can?t believe read most of it I can just see the pattern in always there.

Nah nothing in the photos basically just static except where I kinda see shapes where something should be because I was just looking at it. Haha I really wasn’t like this until I started looking at the stuff I found at one site. I think this is a die with some kind of grid pattern similar maybe I’m just nuts now F9C36D6D-5F3F-4267-8E40-6DD973060A50.jpeg 2BD8B033-9707-4FB6-AE36-7138A4422ACD.jpeg
