This nice older generic FD (Fire Department) measures 23mm in diameter and displays a Fred M. Batchelder Boston Mass backmark.  - "Fred M. Batchelder & Co. was a clothing & uniforms wholesaler, active at least as early as the 1880's, and as late as the 1940's. Batchelder was also listed as a hatter in the 1880's.

The more I see the more interested I become. I may have to start collecting buttons after all. I like this "fresh dug" look.

That's beautiful, Rob, and it's an old one with the simple strand wreath and no period after the F, which shows up on the more modern buttons from Waterbury, etc.
