17.2mm. This is a very rare British military button from the Revolutionary War era, from a Loyalist regiment named the Royal Provincials. It is a variety of this famous regiment which we have not seen. The button is a 1 piece pewter flat button. The design is simply the word "ROYAL" with a small dot at right and in very pleasing condition.
