    3. dav2no1 dav2no1, 5 months ago
      Are they both marked the same? And what are they made of are they made of? You say its button size?
    4. catevintage, 5 months ago
      Yes both have NORTH FENCE on the front 2 cms circle. They are silver in colour. I don't know the exact metal. They have slight differences in the thistle rendering? New here not sure how to add another pic.

      Description: NORTH FENCE around central thistle ?

      Category:???Scottish Fencibles; ?

      Type of button: Flat 17.5mm ?; ?

      Metal: Copper Alloy silvered .; Backmark: S.F ;

      ?Date: ?1779-1783

      Now to value?
      Thank you
