Antique - Loyal Dales Volunteers - Button - Very Rare

The Loyal Dales Volunteers consisted of 1500 men raised in Wensleydale, Yorkshire and were part of the North Riding Militia. They were formed in 1805 and disbanded in 1815. A very interesting article can be read about the on the Dales website, the following hyperlink will take you to the relevant website:

The button is 15mm in diameter and appears to be made of silver gilt.

The condition is poor as can only be expected with a metal detector find (see photos)

My guess is that very few of these buttons have survived, hence this one deserves to be preserved
