    With the lightening bolts, it does appear to have a signals relation. Never seen one like this myself but I think you are on the right track.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Hi Chester,

    I was able to find a couple of similar examples with a winged wheel where it has variously been described as an early 1890s German Telegraph Delivery Railroad Winged Wheel Uniform Button. Below is another example of a button showing the winged wheel. Not sure if the winged wheel indicates railway or something different, but this might give you a lead at least. The photos aren’t the best, but the example you show looks much nicer and of better quality.

    Thanks for the suggestions. It may also be for a German Tramway hence the electrical bolts with the 1 signifying the line or route number.

    It looks similar to street tram car buttons, but I've not seen one with this shield before.

    We have a "Button" forum believe it or not. I can link the thread there and see if it gets any views. I have left a permanent re-direct link in the Imperial forum.
