Dear Mr. Chartrand,
Thank you for your response. I to have Don Troiani's book on Military Buttons of the American Revolution and saw there was no reference made to these buttons. I am also aware of the regulations you talk about in your response. However, what puzzles me is that these buttons were found along side British Naval buttons of the period as described in your response. I assumed they were British based on the location they were recovered from and the fact that they were found with known examples. Being that the buttons are not consistent with known documents available, is there any other sources I can use to accurately identify what they are?
