The backmark on your 1-piece flat button says "Best Strong" in Old English Script lettering,  and "STAND," which is the abbreviation for the the British button industry's Standard of Quality  rating.  Being a British-made 1-piece brass flat button with an "indented lettering" backmark, but found in America, means it dates from sometime between 1810 to the late-1830s.
