Click on an image to enlarge
Here is one of the coolest buttons that you can ever add to your artillery button collection. This is an original coat button that was worn by a member of the artillery during the American Revolution. This is the elusive coat button that is illustrated as figure ACA in the book on Military Buttons of the American Revolution by Don Troiani. The button is constructed of a thing stamped brass face which is why so few of them have survived over the years. The original back of the button would have been constructed using a wooden back and catgut cords to affix it onto the uniform. When we acquired this one, it was missing the back so we had it restored for display purposes. It now displays beautifully as you can see. The face of the button shows the cannon in the center and the "Grand Union" flag flying proudly above. The book notes that these buttons were made in France and imported to be used by the early American artillerymen. When you hold this one in your have, you can just imagine it being worn on a coat in front of George Washington. What a fantastic piece of history!
