Default rev war regiment button

Got out with my buddy PaJim to his permission. Got a good signal on the CTX and out pops this. Consulted with a good friend in SC and he thinks its a 42 regiment of foot knights guard button!!

Nice find. Those pewter buttons don't hold up well. It's cool you could ID it. HH
