Unidentified Victorian Army Regiment of Foot Officers Gilt Mounted Blue Frock Coat / Mufti Button, circa 1840s - 1850s

A scarce gilt button, two piece construction, fixed shank, back marked Jennens & Co, London. A small demi-ball button at circa 14.5mm in diameter. Gilt bright (minor wear to highpoints), but in very good condition. The cypher on most of these buttons were extremely hard to read. All I am certain of is it is not the 4th, 5th nor 68th Foot. I have given up on this one, simply a monogram below a Victorian crown.

In the mid 19th Century officers of many regiments wore high quality style buttons on blue frock coats; sometimes referred to as Mufti buttons. Usually found in two sizes 20mm and 13 - 15mm. This is the smaller of the two. Four of similar quality available. Please email if more than this one is required. Any information on identity welcome.

See my item 61224 for an example to the 4th Foot / Kings Own Lancaster Regiment.
