Copper alloy button. Large flat discoid button with a small boss set centrally on the back for the loop [lost]. The front bears a four lobed or petalled device with three rays between each lobe; the lobes were perhaps rubbed down as hollows with mechanical aid though the intervening rays were probably incised by hand. The grey tint may arise from tin in the metal mix. The finder kindly identifies this as a 'Dandy button'. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1750-1850. Diameter: 34.7mm, Thickness (clear of boss): 1.1mm, Weight: 9.04gms.

Lead alloy button fragment. Cast front from a large hollow composite button, probably of biconvex form with a separate back plate. A prominent rim marks the union of what would appear as the two halves, front and back, though it is moulded in one piece. The front bears an heraldic motif of three plumes passing through an open crown, probably a reference to the badge of the Prince of Wales, probably within a Garter. This may suggest the button to be from a military uniform, possibly of a Volunteer unit which enjoyed or claimed some association with the Prince of Wales. Such units were …
