Default 15 Light Dragoons button ??

Hi, is any one able to confirm if this is a button of the 15th Light dragoons ?? I think if it is, it's quite an early one.
Regards, Nigel.

Default 15 ld

Hello Nigel - Although I am abroad I am keeping in touch with the Forum. Your button is, indeed, an other ranks pewter tunic button of the 15th Light Dragoons dating from around 1820ish-1840ish. Shame about the shank being missing. Regards. David

Hi David, Thanks for your quick response. Hope your enjoying your trip.

David, the button is actually made of brass or copper, definitely not Pewter, don't know if this makes any difference?.

Regards
Nigel
