What have I got?
Article about: Please can somebody identify what this is please? It looks like it's been dug up as it appears to be a bit crusty. I bought it from a junk stall in a local antique market.
It looks like a button for a navy uniform. Apologies for not being able to provide much help, but someone else with more knowledge may be able to say which nation and timeframe it's from.
Possibly a WWI-era Imperial German Navy Button...?
I am thinking it is an 1870 Imperial German Naval Button. Looks legit.
