Click on an image to enlarge

This is a very rare and beautiful button! It is the original cuff size uniform button for the state of Florida. It is the pattern listed as FL3av in Albert's button book and as FL210aAs1. This pattern of Florida buttons is extremely tough to find to find and this one is a beauty. The face of the button is the style that is known as a "Cherokee Rose". In Tice's button book he states that this pattern is "...both rare and costly." He adds that they were likely designed to be used by enlisted men in the state of Florida. The face of the button has the Florida design that was adopted in 1860 by the state's Governor. It was the Cherokee Rose. The Cherokee Rose depicts a six-pointed star in the center of a Cherokee Rose wreath on a plain field with "FLORIDA" below. The six-pointed star was the emblem of the Cherokee Indian Nation. The face of the button has an excellent amount of the original gold gilding which gives it a gorgeous look. On the reverse of the button it has the original shank nicely intact. You can still read every letter of the correct Civil War retailer's mark of the Montgomery, Alabama firm of E. Halfmann. These guns were made up North by the firm of Scovill in Waterbury, Connecticut. In our 30 years in the business this is only the 3rd one of these that we have been able to offer, so don't miss this chance.
