Hello Robert; the button was found in a field in the island of Ré off La Rochelle (port city to the monument of the seventeenth century). The land of the island is mainly composed of sand, my detector is set to find gold so I do not go very deep, about 10 cm! The condition is good, the coins and buttons are usually in good condition!

I decided to get back to work on the site everyday yesterday amending and correcting. I have been working on button connections with NNT insignia as Point of Origin. So, without a box, the quick of it with just 2 early insignia design buttons. Grass roots stuff from NNT buttons which leads directly to early Official Diplomat country establishment then toward military button insignia with give’t authority. There is a normal flow if one looks at the Artisans bigger picture I will detail it one day for the people that just realized this. Below is a specimen. For my critics, I need to confirm prior to 1792. Then I am Golden! So, take a shot of whiskey and listen up.
Does anyone have information on the button below, please email me directly. These 2 unknowns would be the logical predecessor. Both buttons are not in any books. This new puzzle is for the advanced 18th century collector for eagle insignia. But there is a diagram with them and NNT buttons from 1850’s.. This diagram can be found on the website. If your an O.D. collector as myself, draw your own conclusions from the noted insignia. Collectors could note the absence of the top horizontal stripe. The Scottish Artisans did not know the intent of what the horizontal line means. The President / Commander & Chief over 13 states/Congress. I add up a lot of time clues here. Height of the wings was moved higher on the body, and legs more Eagle like. Time clue again? If i step back a button, we can see this win 1789, with War Cry with a flailing beak of NNT? Almost like Isabela’s War Eagle GWI 25.. So, in conclusion, Welcome back my friends to the show that never ends, come inside, and get your clues until i die.
