I am hoping that nautical/maritime button experts can weigh in on latest find. Found this button along the Blackwater River in Santa Rosa FL county near an area where river boat traffic carried lumber and passengers during the years 1870-1910. It measures 15 mm 5/8 inch. The design, with a ship's wheel could have been from a uniform....or maybe ..... it was just fashionable?
