Default another Rev War button?

Found this pewter button at a cellar hole about 200yds from another cellar hole where I found a Bloody Eight Regiment button last year. It's about the size the size of a quarter and has a #4 in the center. Any ideas if it's another Regiment? The 4th Continental Regiment and 4th Mass. Regiment both fought alongside the Bloody Eight at Bunker Hill.

Cool buttons all around, I'll keep digging around to see if I can find another but I don't know the answer off the top of my head.

Default Thanks!

I'm trying to get some books from the library. I saw the same button (worse shape) in a group of Rev War Buttons at an auction site.
