Old Button found on Beach?

Old brownish beach button, although not sea glass, is a really nice find!
~ question submitted by David and Lin from Huanchaco, Peru, South America
Lin and I (David) were hunting sea glass, "glassin'", on our local beach in Huanchaco, Peru, South America.
This was a few days ago. Then, Lin found this really nice old button!
Along with quite a bit of nice glass, we picked up other things, like rocks, agates, pieces of metal, whatever - you just can't resist sometimes.
We can't identify the material it is made of. On one hand it looks like bone. From some research on the net, it seems like it can't be REAL old, considering that it has 5 holes pretty close together.
On the other hand, it could be early plastic.
One site stated that the technology for drilling holes close together is fairly new... but how new? It doesn't seem to be that hard to drill holes close together... hmmmm... Anyone who knows something about buttons perhaps could help us out.
We couldn't find any other buttons with 5 holes in our brief search.
