It is almost certainly brass. The shank is thin wire soldered to the back of the button. 58th Foot it is.

Thanks for the reply , so is it a cuff , shoulder board or tunic button and also are these hard to find and what would it be worth as I dont collect buttons as it came in a job lot with some badges.

Thanks Rob
