Royal Regiment of Irish Artillery

A very rare Royal Regiment of Irish Artillery Officers Button. Approx 24mm in Diameter.
A Royal Crown surmounting a Maid of Erin Harp, this above an old style cannon. There are two raised round dimples on each side of the crown, representing cannon balls. The high relief pattern is set within a sunken Norman Shield that has a lined field. This die variant has the perimeter dots which completely encompasses the inside of the shield's edged border.
This is a one piece button with a Loop Shank.
The photo’s really do not do this button justice.
