Copper alloy Button, either bearing a worn motif in Classical vein, or more probably made from a Late Roman coin. The central scar where a loop has been attached by brazing and subsequently lost appears on what would be the (otherwise featureless) reverse of the coin. The button front retains the discernible trace of a bust, possibly radiate. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850, but possibly re-using a coin of c.260-400. Diameter: 15.5mm, Thickness: 1.5mm, Weight: 0.91gms.
