I found 2 buttons in the same hole today.. My camera is giving me a hard time, they both read old colony on the front in bold letters, the back reads Devans and co... Attleboro Mass.. they are a shade over nickle size, copper backing and a gold front, 2 peice..Any help is appreciated, Rick..I'm guessing Old Colony Railroad..

old colony was a street rail or trolley line in the boston area around the the turn of the 1900's , i believe yours is a match to that Rick.
