Didn't really think much of this little Button until, I cleaned it up and began doing a little research...It still retains some of it's gilt with the Leavenworths & Kendrick Backmark....located in Waterbury, CT...
I've posted the 1833 Bust Dime with it because not only does in fit in the timeframe of the L&K production (1829 - 1834), it was dug in the same field, only yards apart...

This was the site of an 1800-acre plantation that saw Confederate & Union troops on the property....Just prior to Sherman's March to the Sea...

The front of the button, which I believe to be brass (if not, I might have posted in wrong forum).. appears to be blank and free of any design

Those sure were a well made gold-gilt over brass buttons, and most of them were plain faced. Very neat that you found that dime nearby. Certainly confirms the date of the area. Thanks for sharing that, Gene!

Those were thicker than some. We call them fattie-flattys. Lots of gold left on that one.
