Comments: To display this button the digger attached the button by its shank to a circular piece of card stock upon which he recorded button type, his inventory number, backmark, and recovery details. This button was acquired directly from the digger's family. Included in the additional images is an image of the digger's index card for this relic indicating, in most cases, the relic's identification, assessment of condition, recovery date & location, and other general information. An image of this index card will be included along with the description and image of the relic. If you appreciate that excavated appearance with detailed written provenance in the digger's own hand, then this relic is for you. It will be an excellent addition to any excavated Civil War campsite or general relic collection.
Additional information: According to "Uniform Buttons of the United States 1776-1865" by Warren K. Tice, on page 22, these buttons were made during the 1860s.
