Interesting Early American Button


Recommended Posts

Found this little button, if that's even what it is, in a box of assorted military items from all time periods. I've posted it under Revolutionary War, but don't really know what time period it could be from. It's about 5/8" diameter, looks to b made of iron and depicts an eagle clutching a cannon. The shank is flat and has no hole in it so not sure what or how it was used. Anyone have any idea about this piece?
