Click on an image to enlarge

This is an original excavated uniform coat button from the 1820's or 1830's. This is the version with the block style letters "US" on the face. This is the general service button from just after the War of 1812 era. It is made of pewter and displays well. The US on the face is light but still visible. This one is missing the original shank from the reverse of the button. This piece is a variation of the style listed as GI30b in Albert's button book. One thing that is neat about this button is that it was recovered years ago in the area near camp more, Louisiana. Much later after this button was lost that camp would become Louisiana's largest training camp for Confederate soldiers during the Civil War. This is a nice and authentic "US" Uniform coat button with the scarce Philadelphia maker's mark on the reverse.
