Beautiful Excavated Confederate Lined "I" Vest Button With Floating Shank
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautiful excavated Civil War Confederate infantry 19mm size coat button. This is the style that was run through the blockade to be sold to well-to-do Southern soldiers. The neat thing about this button is the backmark. On the back of the button it has the "floating style" shank. This style shank goes through to the back but pivots which helped to keep it from breaking like normal shanks. The original shank is intact and in fine shape. You can still read the backmark on this one and it is the Limerick, Ireland firm of Peter Tait. The face has a very nice look to the large ornate lined "I" that denotes the infantry branch of Confederate service. This is the 19mm style listed as figure CS173 in Albert's button book and CSI206am1 in Tice's button book. This is a nice complete button all the way around.
