Found this relic hunting today on land that has been in my family since early 1800s. I can't find anything on-line like it and was just wondering what war it was from? Year? Value? It's in GREAT condition. It's brass, slightly larger than a quarter, has "Made in England" on the back and has "E Pluribus Unum" above the Eagle's wings. Any ideas? Thanks in advance for your help!

That is a Great Seal button and dates from 1910 to the present day. The backmark will be the key to dating it and I am sure BigCypressHunter will be interested in it as he is compiling a list of Great Seal backmarks. It is not on the list I have but, hopefully, BigCY will be along soon and can shed some light on it.
