Non-Excavated Confederate Buttons from the Various States
Superb & Scarce Non-Dug NC16A Variation of the North Carolina "Sunburst"
Click on an image to enlarge
This is a tough to find non-excavated version of this button! It is an original Confederate made button for the state of North Carolina. This is the style referred to by collectors as the "Sunburst" because of the rays coming out from the center of the button. The center has the letters "NC". This is the less ornate version with the necessity of manufacture of war production. This is the pattern listed as NC16A in Albert's button book and as NC239b1 in Tice's button book. This one is in beautiful condition all the way around. The face of the button has the fine untouched thick copper tone patina all over. On the back of the 1-piece button it still has the applied shank which is missing most of the time. This button came from the personal collection of Mr. Terry Teff, who wrote a book on the uniform buttons of North Carolina. You will have a hard time finding a purer NC16 than this one.
