This is a late 19th c. brass button that I think depicts the cigar store version of Hiawatha, (see last picture) co-founder of the Iroquois nation and subject of Longfellow's epic poem Song of Hiawatha. The subject is adorned in teeny bright cut steels (at least 20) all intact. I don't recall ever seeing this button in person but am very sure I have seen it in black and white somewhere! It measures 1 & 5/8" and is in excellent condition.
Especially interesting of the design is the bird at his breast.
