I excavated this button in 2012 at an early cabin site in Whitsett, NC. The back mark is worn off so I hope somebody out there could recognize the type and manufacture. I also have a flat variety cabin button with silver wash.

Those are one of my favorites! Beautiful Button, Tombachunter.. Thanks for sharing that with us!  Oldrelic57 is also correct on the backmark info:  Your button is PC 358 variety listed in Albert's book on page 446/447.

Thanks for the ID comments on the Harrison button from the forum. I will try later to post my other flat button variety of the Harrison button with silver wash. It has been in an exhibit titled "Artifacts of Rockingham County, NC Early American Homesites" at the Madison Public Library since 2016.
