    Hi Greyhound.

    Nice button. It looks as if it is a Livery Button belonging to a member of staff working for the the Whitmore family who had links to Shropshire.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Thanks Mike,you beat me to it ?…a small extract from an article about the family…”This is a younger branch of an ancient family formerly seated at Whittimere or Whitmore, in the parish of Claverley, where it is traced to the reign of Henry III. ”
    It gives you a buzz when you can put things in context ?

    It’s great to be able to ‘personslise’ something isn’t it? I’ve not found a livery button in my 2 years of detecting… yours is a nice one. Well done. Thanks for telling us about the history.
