Hi Littlehand

My knowledge of buttons is very limited, but that button looks like a General Service Button 1900 +
I could be totally incorrect, someone on the forum might know.

My understanding (just having a repro coat made) is that the general service button was used by other ranks and regimental insignia buttons by officers and NCOs . Not totality sure but is the crown on the coat of arms a "kings crown" and not a queens crown for Victoria?
