Old button that was found and never identified

Good day all. I found this button at an old home site where military buttons and an old eagle sword plate dating back to the mid 1800s was found and never identified it since it is worn. IT could possibly be a 2 piece button because there is a ridge on back but might be one piece as well.Thanks!

Soak that puppy in distilled water for a while to see if you can lift the black crud off the back. Use a thorn to gently lift the crud. There may be makers marks or words on the back. Lots of early fancy buttons are going to be from England and they marked every one. Peace Roy
