extra rich button
Quote this message in a reply
I found this in the German park today. I thought it was old but then saw writing on the back and figured it was newer. then is saw something on the internet that made me think it might be older. it appears to read "extra rich" on one part and "orange col" on another, and another word starting with W. Can someone educate me as to it's age and origin? thanks Happy

That is a very old button -- we usually call them Flat Buttons due to the fact they are flat and not concave or rounded. Most we find have no design but occasionally they will have something on the front and many have backmarks. Early button makers marked them. The Extra Rich & Orange Col referred to the gold gilt that the button originally had. Early marketing !!

I would guess Early 1800's (1815--1840) ?? just a guess on the dates.

Thanks for the info. It looked old but the writing fooled me.

Cool button, congrats!

Remember when your cup holder sat next to you in a mini skirt and tank top?

Good find!
I love finding buttons.

I found one from period of the War of 1812 here in the US.
One day I will take it out and post it!
