The one on the left is smooth on the front and appears to be marked with only "GILT" on the back. The one on the right has a smooth front and a broken shank. I'm hoping they have some pretty good age to them, as I am trying to make the transition from the "age of clad" back to the 's. The majority of the brass 1-piece flatbuttons we dig in the US were imported here from Britain, because the young US button-making industry was unable to mass-produce them until the s.
The War-Of caused US consumers to dislike British-made products, so American button-makers sometimes included an American eagle in the button's backmark to signify that it was a US-made button. British-made ones often have a British crown in the backmark. At that time, the word gilt in a button's backmark referred strictly to gold-plating Also at that time, the British had established a set of "Quality" standards regarding the manufacture of metal buttons.
Unfortunately, the standards were not strictly enforced, so button makers quickly went to playing fast-and-loose with the Quality ratings. I should mention, the American button manufacturers copied the British markings. So unless a backmark tells a British location like London or contains a British spelling such as "colour" instead of color, a quality-rating in the backmark won't tell you whether the button is British-made or US-made.

Congrats on your finds. Amergin, It's best to start a new thread asking questions of your new find. You will get more answers. To answer your question though I would say it is a flat button, but a few clear pictures of the front will tell more.
