Sold for 82 bucks, single piece button...is this an 1820's? Has to be one of the earliest USMC buttons of this pattern out there, unfortunately I was runner up.

Likely the top range of value... Dug enlisted emblem, cleaned, preserved, oiled? Sadly most of the reverse is gone, cannot tell the maker. By its design, IMHO it dates from the 40s - 70s (based on backmarks design) and the 16 stars which were more common in the 40s.
