I don't know a lot about buttons, but...
Not a Tombac
I would call it a Dandy

Late 18th c to early 19th c

That’s more what I was thinking too. It fits the criteria for EARLY 19th Century. Like you I’m not up to date on buttons. I’ve only dug 3 significant buttons since starting detecting.

Thank you!

Nice Dandy button HBH. :thumbsup:
If you've already found three of these since you started detecting, then you're doing well and are onto some old sites.

Thank you for your response. This is actually my first Dandy Button. I found a 4 hole button from possibly Civil War and a jacket button from U.K. Dating to early 19th century. Thanks again!
