This excavated US poncho hook and button is in excellent condition and was recovered by a local Shenandoah Valley, Virginia relic hunter. These devices were patented by Abel Putnam in 1862 and designed to connect two grommets on a rubber blanket to be used as ponchos by the soldier in inclimate weather. The face of the button has plenty of gilt under a light green patina with no pushes, cracks, or breaks. The iron rear and its hook, while rusty, is intact and fairly solid, but should be handled gently. In most cases when recovered, the iron hook is missing, but not in this case! This relic will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War campsite or general relic collection.
