Thanks! I'm working on getting a photo from my buddy of a button he got. We weren't sure what it was at first, but now I've come to find out about "livery buttons" and I believe his bird is the same that's in the middle of mine. So it might be a family crest/design. Hopefully I'll have an update soon.

i think you may be right on that. the trophy looked like a shield at first, the three point at top found on Rev buttons. but now it looks like it would not be military and i think you may be right on Livery button. some early buttons were light engraved look.

do you use the jelly for guilt?

and check the back for backmark of maker that may help date it.

still really cool button

The back of the button is smooth as can be, but I got the picture of the livery button today. I think I'm right on track with it.... More research time to figure out the family name behind it!

thanks! i have been looking into that site and found a few that come super close, but minor details are off like the tail feathers. I think my next step is sending them what I have and looking for input. I was looking hard at the Cornish Cough, and found a couple other sites that had a more matching variation.

Congrats on all those amazing finds! Any of them would be worthy of a separate thread.

Would it be possible to get more pictures of the sword pommel/butt cap? How big is it across? It looks early.

A buddy of mine had actually pulled that one in. I will see if he can send some. If I remember right the open end would take my pinky, it was very small. The site bounced from 1600s-1800s.

Thank you! It definitely puts you on a high. Two of my guys in the group were brand new and it was their first hunt. I keep having to remind them that it's not always like this 😅
