Thank you for the comments everyone, and thank you very much Joe for the banner spot.

Following the Revolutionary war, The 60th Regiment was much later designated as the King’s Royal Rifle Corps by the War of 1812
I believe the other button i found with the "Rifle" on it would be from when the 60th Regiment "Royal Americans" changed to the Royal Riffle Corps

the 60th Regiment was a special selected group of soldiers trained for fighting in the forests and woodland warfare.
