Copper alloy button. Pressed metal flat discoid button with deep striations on front and back, and with a drawn wire loop brazed to the back. Darkened by treatment of oil by the finder, which leaves it unclear whether a black paint-like surface on the front is an original feature. It is uncertain whether the striations on the front mask a figurative design. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1850-1900. Diameter: 15.2mm, Thickness: 1.2mm, Weight: 1.22gms.

Treasure ref. 2015 T655: half of a hollow silver button made from sheet silver in the shape of an acorn with one half an integral loop at the base and a terminal knop.

A Post Medieval lead-alloy militia button with the initials CAM within a pelleted frame and a broken loop. Steve Newman comments: This is the first of four patterns known to the Cambridgeshire Militia which was formed in 1759 and eventually formed the 4th battalion of the Suffolk Regt​​​​. This style is probably no later than 1794, so from a c1770 introduction period is the likely date range.
