Hello all. 

It maybe far fetched but maybe someone recognize that type of button. 

It was found together with a lot musket balls and a iron canonball on an field in Germany. 

Could it be a military button of some kind?

I saw prussian landwehr uniform buttons from the napoleonic war that would fit perfectly. What do you think about this?

That the Prussian uniforms remained the same more or less from 1813 to 1848 and i  think also that the Prussian Army was notable for conservative use of resources ,then it could be a Landwehr button
