A cast, possibly lead alloy, military button showing a 3 and G with a thistle between, within a multi-stranded star. This signifies the 3rd Foot Guards (became the Scots Fusilier Guards in 1831). This is a second pattern for the Scots Guards, this design is believed to have come into use around 1790 and as a pewter version it will be for the other ranks. The style did not last terribly long and was changed to the Order of the Thistle with a crown which they then used until 1881.

Pressed and stamped three-part hollow domed copper alloy button, but missing its back plate and separate soldered attachment loop.

He was known as the 'Black Prince' because he had his suit of armour painted black, a very unusual thing at the time. He later became the Prince of Wales and the three feath…
