I'm guessing this button is an overall or work clothes button. I didn't find much about it

That is one I am not familiar with, and it isn't listed in my go-to book. I will check a couple more references tomorrow and let you know what I find if anything.

Thanks for posting that. If you don't mind, I will make a copy for my book.

Here is what I have found so far:  Union Joe Overalls Co,. Inc. was a manufacture strictly of overalls and was based in New Orleans, La. in 1920.  So, I imagine your button would be from the same era.   Judging by search results, and by the fact that it isn't represented in my reference material, it would appear that your button is a relatively scarce one.

Hi.  I found one of these buttons.  I can't recall exactly when and where, but I was stationed in New Orleans from 1998-2002, so that'd be a pretty good guess.  Here's a picture of mine.  Any more details would be much appreciated.

My bet is that they are both early 1900's --1920's or so, and that one is a stud while the other is a wobble shank.
