Copper alloy Button or Cloak fastener. Cast concavo-convex discoid button front with an oval ended and integrally cast and drilled loop. The front bears the motif of an incised six pointed star with a central circular motif of tiny elongated stamps, the star enclosed within an irregular ring of semicircular or circular stamps (probably the latter held at an angle to produce a partial impression); and with a further, outer, six pointed star formed of similar stamps. The display face is black, perhaps from application of linseed oil in antiquity. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1650-170…

A post medieval cast copper alloy military button with the legend HONI SOIT QVI MAL Y PENSE around the letter K aboveDG, with a crown above. There are also indistinct London back stamps. Steve Newman comments: This is a button of the 1st (King's) Dragoon Guards. The design stayed in use for many years. It's believed it came into use around 1795 and the design changed a little in 1855, so this example definitely lies between those dates though I would from the design and style cautiously suggest c1800-30 for this example

A copper alloy button dating to the post-medieval period. The button is globular with a loop underneath with which to secure it to the garment. There are two small casting holes on the lower hemisphere. This example appears undecorated but several with gilding or patterned decoration have been recorded.
