Was hunting an old plantation site road bed near a stream and popped this button out, I have not been able to identify. The site is colonial and also had Civil War occupation. The button is silver over brass, 3 piece (front, back, and loose shank) No maker mark on back, clearly visible is crown and 3 Fleur De Lis design? Any thoughts? Thanks for looking, oh and here is a scary head for you too, scared me in the woods!!

French coat of arms, my guess non-military, late 18th century (older?), from a civilian vest or coat. Anyone else?

Bummer, those buttons are from a blazer from Kohl's or T.J. Max?, along with the Colonial Spanish Reales, I guess it is a multi-component site. The baby head spook is a scary one IMG_20160603_091720039.jpg

It definitely copies the early French Royal arms, or however you want to say it... and there is even buttons with the same design, but no question the modern button call is the right one.
