This was an Artillery button that was produced from 1802 to 1808 according to Alberts. What makes this button so cool to me is where I found it. Think about it, Not much Revolutionary War going on in New Mexico. And it predates the War of 1812. I found this button on the banks of the Dry Cimarron a few miles from Folsom New Mexico. It was in a place where we found some other Indian artifacts. I'm guessing an Indian acquired it somehow and then lost it at the spot I found it.

 

PS. This is one I did not get to keep. The landowner wanted it. But I swear, if I knew a value on it I would offer him double just to put it in my collection!

Another fantastic button.
Looking up the Armitage button mark led me to a sales site with some very early 1800 buttons.Most of them were in mint shape and anywhere from $35-$850.
Never found one like that one that got away.

Thanks for the comments guys. Appreciate the price ranges Dennman. To be honest, I would pay that $850.00 even though it's not mint. I think it would sit really nicely next to my Riflemans button. I too wish it could talk and tell its traveling tales.
