An incomplete Post Medieval copper alloy button of 18th century date. The button is circular in plan. The front face is slightly convex and is decorated with a raised sunburst pattern radiating from the centre to the outer edges. The reverse is slighty concave and at centre are the remains of an attachment loop (now missing). A broadly similar button, decorated with raised radiate lines, is illustrated in Bailey (2004; p 68, 9.209), which Bailey dates to the 18th century.
