WELCOME TO THE NEW AND IMPROVED OLD REBELLION WAR RELICS
This superb rare local button was intended for confederate officers,and is of confederate wartime manufacture. It has the eagle in the relaxed position on a pedestal, and was made to appear like a three part staff button, but the fat rim is integral to the design. Has a lined field with the 13 stars. This is a coat size two part high convex button, with false rim. Has the blank channel in back, with the stand up shank intact. Has some gilding, with a minor push in front. Another one of my favorite button. Not at all common in this condition. This button was found in Fredericksburg Virginia.
Got this from Harry Ridgeway years ago.
Backmark: ""Blank Back Local(25mm)"
