Very Early Flat Button With Design

At a church location from the 1830s, I found this designed flat button at around 5″ with the E-Trac.  It rank up as a 12-44 and is a bit larger than a US Quarter.  The shank is intact.   There are no maker’s marks or writing on back.

I’ve found plenty of flat buttons but this design (which looks like it was done by hand) is the best ever.  I did a little soft brush cleaning and it could use a bit more, but haven’t had the time.  I have another flat button to clean also.

If you have info on this button, let me know!
