According to 'Adams & Albert's' publication, train themed wobble-shank overall buttons all date from 1900 - 1912.  Unfortunately, there isn't a publication I know of that actually deals with stud-style buttons such as this one.  However, since this stud depicts the exact image as one of the wobble shank buttons does, I feel certain that this, too, would date to the same time period.

Rob, me & Shinbone have dug that same design on buttons down here in Georgia, actually I think it was Northeast Alabama...

I'm loving this Button site

Love riveted and wobble shank work clothing/overall buttons. Here's one that is considered a little harder to find.

Here's the back of the Round House work clothing/overall button, it's called a "riveted" back button.

Here's the back of the Round House vintage work clothing/overall button. The National Button Society calls this type of back "riveted".  The wire shanked ones are called "wobble shank".

I like all kinds of work clothing/overall buttons and as a collector of all kinds of buttons from "pretty" to "uniform" I look for different types including pictorials.  There is some error in generalized collecting of these types of buttons with folks thinking they were issued by actual railroad companies but I have only seen one or two like that which actually had the name of a known railroad company on them.  Those would span into "uniform buttons" as well.  The generic ones with a locomotive image were just artistic licence by clothing manufacturers of the time as most overalls were sold to either farmers or railroad yard workers.

Excellent graphic and great information.. I was always under the impression that the solid "shank"  buttons were called studs, while the two piece s"shank" were called riveted.

The National Button Society calls those work clothing/overall buttons with an elongated back and tack looking end a "riveted" shank, there are some they call donuts too but I don't really collect very many of these types of buttons as they are getting harder to find and a bit pricey but I'll get a sample of the "donut".  The ones with wire shanks are called "wobble shank".  To me "stud" is not the right term as studs are a solid back with no attachments but with a wider base to the back to fit thru a lapel buttonhole.  Thanks for the welcome kingskid.
