    Hello, I'm new to the forum and was wondering if anyone can help me identify this old button I have. It came in an auction lot that I bought a couple years ago that had all kinds of old US and World military buttons as well as other assorted goodyear rubber buttons. I just haven't had any luck identifying this button though. I don't believe it's a US Military button because it looks like a crown on it and a castle to the lower right. Then it also looks like a bird is below the crown and possibly carrying a snake in it's claws. I've searched and searched and found a newer reproduction copy of this button several months ago, but it didn't say what it was or anything else about it. Hopefully somebody here can help me out and possibly tell me when and where is was from too.

    I can't ID the button, but my guess is, it is a nobility button.
    One showing the alliance between two familly's in general by mariage.
    One is the man's familly crest the other the women's crest.
    The reproduction you are showing is probably a re-struck of the button for fashion purpose.
