  This is a button I just found, only partially cleaned. It appears that approximately 95% of the gilt is still in tack as is the back of the button. This button is listed in Albert's uniforms and historical buttons as #152B page 429. It is listed as a button of the Van Buren and Harrison Campaign which occurred in 1840. What amazes me most about this button is that it is not only 161 years old, but could have been possibly been in the ground that long, but also I know for a fact that the ground it was found in has been under water since the 1940's, and the button is still in great condition with the gold present
