Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautiful non-excavated Civil War Confederate engineer's coat button. This is the style that was run through the blockade from the firm of Van Wart Sons of England. It would have been sold to well-to-do Southern engineers. On the back of the button it has the clear "VAN WART SON & Co" backmark. The original shank is intact and in fine shape. The face has a good bit of the gold gilt remaining with the German style letter "E" on the face of this large 25mm button. This "E" on the button's face denotes the engineer branch of Confederate service. This version is illustrated as figure CS151 in Albert's button book and CSE221a1 in Tice's button book. This is a beautiful button that would be a superb addition to any collection.
