    Adam, this is a common trouser button, made in the thousands by many manufacturers. Buttons Ltd produced buttons for military and civilian use from 1909-1959. The British Button Society may be able to help you date it better, or perhaps a British metal-detector forum. https://www.britishbuttonsociety.com/
