Looks like a blazer crest dome button and not as old as you're hoping it is.

Modern as in 1900's vs 1800's or before : yes

But that's just my opinion and there are too many variations to find an exact match.

Maybe someone else will chime in to agree or disagree.

hi clharwood,
looks to me you found a german button.bavarian.
if its old ? the attachment on the back is to good in shape and very solid to me.
the attachment is my guess from 1900 up. the button itself could be much older.
but nothing is impossible.
might be a german immigrant brought it back in the days to the USA.

here a similar one on that Picture
Buttons with the princely lion stone coat of arms, found on the site of the princely lion's hay castle in Miltenberg! RS: Best quality for all my buttons found this way!

it would take me hours to figure out what button you have...
might be a Traditional costume button from the bavarian "Schuhplättler" they always dances on german oktoberfest events.
my sugestion is about 1950 and from bavaria.
