    Found this metal detecting in SD and trying to identify its origin. Can you help? It looks like copper, but the back is gone. It looks like a lion on either side and a coat of arms with lion in the center. I can't make out what all the letters say, which could possible solve this mystery. Thanks for looking

      SD is a strange place to find an English uniform button if not a copy from somebody's blazer etc.. Uniform buttons can be researched rather easily. Start with 18th century Eng. buttons 1st.

      First someone said it might be from east India company, then someone else said it's not British ,but maybe Dutch or Swedish. I've looked online and haven't seen anything similar. Guess I'll keep looking.

      Keep looking. Not my job. SD just seemed to be a strange place to find an original uniform button. You might ck my profile to see the Eng. button I found. It was solid & gold washed from 1805-1815 as I remember. Found that locally in St. Maarten. Bon chance.

      Sorry to chime in late. Your button bears the coat of arms of Belgium. No idea why it would turn up in SD.

      Good show Chris. So many coat of arms from European countries are so similar, that I don't follow the differences as it's not my field. (Still trying to figure out what my field is) Strange area for it to be found. Must be a later import somehow. There is definitely a story behind it.
