Wondering if the resident brains trust can help?
Recent find from late 1800’s house site included a fancy button (1st pic)
I am thinking military, with the “VR” possibly meaning “Victoria Reign/Regent” or “Volunteer Rifles” eg (2nd pic)
Anyone else found one of these?
That’s a beauty button, not sure exactly what it is, but VR generally stood for Victoria Regina, and was used on many uniforms, both military and government departments.
No brains trust here Andrew but that’s a ripper button ! The feathery look of the letters is very distinctive , and very different from any other VR buttons i have seen . Great find , i would hammer that site to death !
