Hi, can anyone help with identification please?
Button just under 23mm diameter. Has some slivering colour on front.
Writing on the back, but not legible.

Ironic that i see the letters as M D. and you found it with an MD being an MD as indeed we all are.
Welcome to the Hub, hopefully you will get a positive ID .
Cheers, :thumbsup:

Hello :thumbsup:

There's a decent site here for livery buttons

And young Dave above put this thread up recently.

I bought a lovely old copy of Boutell’s Heraldry (a nice 1864 edition :Party: ) today and I really think this isn’t a family livery button. Maybe a trade or other society one (think Silversmith’s Guild to get the idea),

I’ve had a quick look but got nowhere so far sadly :(
Yes I really don’t like Roman coins, I’m not joking
