Made of pressed copper alloy, is 17mm diameter and appears to have had a wire loop on the back. It seems to depict some geezer holding a torch and riding a chariot pulled by several horses. Perhaps a Victorian classical revival button?

i did some looking and it seems chariots on buttons were a thing in Victorian times. Similar to this one but open-work.

Not seen one like that either.
Although the button is not the same, the image of the button Jan spotted is spot on. :clapping:
Cheers, :thumbsup:
