Let me try to re-word it then. I do like it, it's the first of that type I've got, so for those reasons I do like it, but at the same time it's not military, and has no value. It is common, you can get bunches of them on Ebay UK for next to nothing. So in that sense it's not really special, but as I "did say" was what it represents, or suggests about the site where it came from is whole other story. Thinking about what else might be there, like a silver coin as old, keeps me awake at night.
In other words the age of the button does excite me. It's like a square nail in many ways, it suggests you can find early 1800's stuff, but the nail itself is not that exciting.
And make no mistake I'm happy with the find itself, but still remains it's just nothing much on it's own. EXAMPLE I was way happier about the 4th regiment of foot button I got awhile ago, even though it 140 years or so newer, as there are next to none examples anywhere, and it's military, so that to me IS special.
