Construction: Convex, two-piece.
Approximate size: 22 mm.
Condition: Good, excavated, secure shank present. This well constructed button is solid with a smooth and even deep dark green patina. There is a significant push to the front at the eagle's upper body and left wing, with a very tiny crack in the rim as can be seen in the side view in the additional images. There are no repairs, other cracks or pushes.
Comments: Included in the additional images of the button is an image of the digger's index card indicating, in most cases, the button's identification, assessment of condition, recovery date & location and other general information. In cases where there are discrepancies between the digger's description and Virginia Relic's description, Virginia Relic's description shall be deemed correct. This example will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War button or general relic collection.
Recovered: May 21, 1987, north of Wilmington, NC in a Confederate camp beside old railroad.
