    My hunting partner said it came off the bottom of a flint lock pistol , it looks like that to me too. Its shaped like it goes on the bottom of the handle of a old pistol.

    very possible the reason I was pointing it out . I assume its kind of cup shaped on the other side .

    Congrats again on some nice quality finds .

    More great finds Calabash. Were these buttons from the same field you've been pulling other mil. out of? If so, you've got one heck of a honey hole there sir!
