Item: Confederate Infantry Coat Button - "Cast I"
Construction: Convex, solid cast brass, one-piece.
Approximate size: 23 mm
Condition: Excellent, excavated, shank present. This heavy, solid button has a mixed green patina. The button is complete with no cracks, breaks, bends, or repairs.

Comments: For several reasons, these buttons are one of my favorite relics of the Civil War. Its simplicity in design, its weight, and, from time to time, its manufacturing crudeness, make a very attractive and thoroughly Confederate produced and used button. These buttons were made to last. This Confederate Infantry button will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War button or general relic collection.
