Shown are three examples of 2-hole shell buttons with recessed centers. The buttons were recovered from the Martin Farmstead in Republic County. The site was the location of an archeological salvage project in 1992 due to impending highway construction, and is representative of the lifestyle of rural Kansans and Americans of the late 19th- to early 20th-centuries.
