This is an excellent original Confederate cavalry coat button. This is the fanciest version of "C" button that was produced during the Civil War. It is known to the collectors as the Manuscript cavalry. The face of the button has the intricate and ornate lined "C” with the smooth background. Most of these buttons never had gilding like this one but the detail is exquisite as you can see in the pictures. It still displays beautifully. On the back of the button it has the retailer mark of the Montgomery, Alabama firm of Halfmann & Taylor. They imported many quality items such as this button from Europe to sell to the wealthy Confederate soldiers. As you can see this is the version that has the misspelled "ALABAMD" lettering. The button would have been made in England by the firm of Smith, Kemp & Wright. This is the version listed as CS129 in Albert’s button book and CSC212 in Tice’s button book. This button is a great item that any collector would appreciate.
