A button used on the tunics of the 57th Regiment when stationed in Taranaki during the 1860s. The button has " 57 " in raised metal on the front of the rounded face, and the metal has corroded to be a pale green in colour. The grooves and raised areas of the button's face have dirt ingrained into them. The reverse of the button has a loop for attaching the button to fabric, which is also blocked with dirt.
