Those are all older than 'normal' (except the livery buttons) and very nice too. ::g

Edit: D'oh. :-L if id noticed the crown. Royal Irish artillery of course :(

Sounds like a very interesting site.

Just idly Googling - does the right hand one in your photo look rather like the one top right here - (1790-1802)?

Half way down this page are a couple of examples that look very similar to yours, 1785-1801 so earlier than the other ones you have posted before

Your livery button May be Perry. Going to go have a search for relevance to Fermanagh ::g (Could also be Bate or Brocket)
