Confederate Navy Coat Button
csn212a1front.JPG(34180 bytes)
csn212a1back.JPG (27613 bytes)
Backmark: "".TREBLE STANDd/EXTRA RICH." dm(25mm)
Here is a beautiful original, non dug confederate navy coat button. This is the style with the anchor in the center atop of 2 crossed cannons. Below the anchor are the letters "CSN". It has a nice amount of the original gilding intact that makes a nice display. This button has never been cleaned, and could be to bring out more of the gilding. This is also the scarce version as the rope border of the button has a left hand twist instead of the standard right hand twist. Only one in the entire series to do this, which makes it scarce. The back has the full tight stand up shank and the correct civil war back mark. Tice says this is a "...difficult to find" button.

1st Light Artillery Coat Button,

From The Uniform Of Gen Moses Porter
lightartilleryporterfront.jpg (34180 bytes)
lightartilleryporterback.jpg (27613 bytes)
Backmark: ""H.T.&D/*EXTRA SUPERFINE*" rm(19mm)
Here is a truly historic button from the uniform of General Moses Porter.This button is Ca. 1813-1814 and is of one piece gilded brass construction. The front showing the script letters "LA" and the number "1" below. This is all on a lined field surrounded by 16-5 pointed stars. The back of this very convex button has the full stand up shank, and the clear backmark. As you can see it has been very much used. General Porter began his career as an ensign of the 6th Mass. Regiment in Jan. of 1777. He was then commissioned 2nd LT.3rd Continental Artillery in 1779 and served through out the balance of the American Revolution. He was then retained for regular service and commissioned Colonel, 1st LT. Artillery in March 1812. Then brevetted Brigadier General in 1813 for distinquished service in the campaign of 1813.

The Porter Collection which included this button was acquired many years ago by Famed author/dealer Mr Jim Kochan. There were a total of 7 buttons, 5 of which were sewed onto a linen vest and two loose ones. This is one of the loose ones that was then sold to dealer and collector Cary Delery of The Historical Shop, who had it in his collection for a number of years. I purchased it not long ago from him, and It has now come to be in my collection. I am thrilled to have this very historic and wonderful butoon.
