Copper alloy button. Die stamped flat discoid livery button, possibly with an enamelled front - if so, the coating is now a tan tint. A drawn wire loop is brazed to the back. The front bears the motif of a gracile standing quadruped left, possibly with long straight horns and so perhaps a cervid or caprid. The reverse bears a maker's back stamp with an indeterminate legend within circumferential border; viewed from the photograph this concludes: [-----?EW & SONS]. Suggested date: Post-Medieval, 1800-1850. Diameter: 25.7mm, Thickness (clear of loop): 1.7mm, Weight: 5.30gms
