Lee's North Anna Camp Dug Confederate Infantry "Lined I" Coat Button CS172
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautiful dug original Confederate coat size Infantry uniform button. This is the style referred to by collectors as the "Lined I" because on the inside of the block "I" for infantry on the front is small lines. This one has a nice greenish brown patina. It has the original back and shank intact and has the correct Civil War "SUPERIOR QUALITY" marked back. They left the maker's name off of the back so it could be sold by any retailer without advertising for the actual maker. This is the style listed as CS172 in Albert's book and CSI203a3 in Tice's button book. The "I" is super clear on the front with an attractive look. The verbal history that accompanied the buckle is that it was recovered in 1981 in a Confederate campsite near the battle of North Anna, Virginia. The Battle of North Anna was fought on May 23rd through 26th 1864, as part of Union Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant's Overland Campaign against Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. This is a fine original Civil War Confederate Infantry Button.
