This artifact is a phoenix button, or a small metal coin like object that has an imprinted phoenix on it as well as a phrase and a number at the bottom. It had a fastener on the back to make it a button, which has broken off since it was last used, and most all of its engravings (like the phrase and number) have been well worn and are now unreadable. It was going to be used for King Christophe of Haiti as an army button stating that the person who wore it was in his army and also which regiment of his army they were in. After being manufactured in england in the early 19th century, the King got ill and later that year committed suicide, so the buttons where put out as trade items and got into the hands of Nathaniel Wyeth. He was just starting a trading post (which later challenged Fort Vancouver and the HBC but failed) and many of the buttons he got were supposedly traded to the native americans, which then traded them up and down all along the west coast as a little trinket or coin. -Joseph
