I found this little gilt button at the Dron dig. GLASGOW is quite clear under the crown and I think the legend on the left is Sheriff Court but I can't make out the lettering on the right of it as it's too worn. A court officials uniform button maybe? Can't see anything like it on Google.

...interesting find. I think it says Glasgow Sheriff Court House, but I cannot find any reference online. The court house was built and opened in the mid-eighties, so I don't know how old the button will be. I could be a court officer's uniform button I suppose?

Thanks For your help Derek. Maybe somebody with a good book on buttons will be able to identify it!
