Default Federal Revenue Cutters Button

I haven't identified it yet. Thought I'd share while taking a lunch break. It has a shield, scales, and skeleton key. Back says something like "robinsons and co.

Thanks guys! CapRock thanks for getting an ID. I cleaned it up and most of the gold plating is intact. Found the wreath portion to a buckle down there later that day also. Unfortunately, it didn't match my tongue piece.

Congrats on the wreath.
Love to see a pic.
Sounds like you got a hot spot on some really old ground.

Nice button find. The "scales" is actually an anchor.

Cap, I'm at work and will get you a pic when I get home in a few days. If this storm lets me. Unfortunately, the area was hydro washed after the panners came through. So, most of the relics are buried under several feet of dirt and tailings.

Wayne, if you look closely at the button there are scales below the anchor and above the skeleton key. I didn't notice it until my buddy pointed it out.

You are right, I see them now. Missed it before.

Ok,but you have to agree Federal Revenue Cutter doesn't seem to be very descriptive of Coast Guard, unless "cutter" refers to a type of ship ???
