I found this button while metal detecting in South Buffalo, NY in an area rich with History from Red Jacket and the Seneca Indians, looks like a crown at top, flower to right, maybe a person on left with only a right arm and plump body shape also with crossed sticks behind him and crossed (hockey, Golf, Oars) sticks in center, there is some symbols, appear to be another language around rim of button, no markings visible on back, would love to know something about it, I couldnt find anything on the world wide web :) Thanks

Mystery Solved

    What area was it found might give a clue.
  3. twinszzzzz, 5 years ago
    In south Buffalo, NY an area associated with Red Jacket and Seneca indians originally, although I'm sure it dosent go back that far...

    Doesn't help me but maybe will help others help you. Don't be too sure on the age. Bon chance.

    Thanks blunderbuss2, wouldnt that be exciting if it did date that far back! New to this site and I am enjoying looking around!

    You don't show the back & that can often tell a lot. If it has a ring on it for sewing on a jacket, put a magnet to it. Clean the back carefully & see if it has markings showing who made it or whatever. Don't see how i can help you from the islands but just telling what to post so others can. Pics of the back will help them.

    What a letdown. I was hoping for really old with a fascinating history.

    Wouldnt that have been nice! We have been detecting just as a hobby for years now and we did find an old 1920's broach but thats the closest to "really old" weve come!
