Hello fellow treasure hunters can you please tell me what this is I know it’s at least from the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s because of the place that I was hunting but that’s about it. Any help will be appreciated

I would think a snap, but could be a tin back button, can you take some of the corrosion off the face with some lemon juice and tooth brush, or what ever method you usually use. If you have never used lemon juice, just make sure you thouroughly was it off after and be light with it in general.

That really cleaned up nice! It does look like a button, maybe a coat button. Nice find.

I think overall button is right. Carefull with the lemon juice, to much could ruin a valuable
button.

Thanks Brian, I wont clean it anymore. So it could be valuable then, where can I further check to see if it is valuable?
