I live in Virginia in my family's home that was built in 1838 and passed down through the generations till it became mine. I found this button and I think it was my great grandmother's. I don't know much more about it and couldn't find any additional info either when I googled it. Any info you can provide would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Dear Sirs: I am trying to find out when this pin is from. It was made by Bastian Bros. Company.
