1/2″ Sterling Silver Scottish Formal Celtic Knot Button.
Highlanders were said to be suspicious of money and preferred to carry what wealth they had in the form of jewellery and embellishments to their weapons. Solid silver buttons were one of their favourites and these would often be passed down from father to son. If the Highlander died away from home, it was important to him that he had enough valuables with him that would pay for a good funeral and a headstone. It’s interesting to note that Roman soldiers used to contribute periodic payments into a fund which provided the same for them.
