When was the last time you saw one of these beauties offered for sale? This is the scarce coat size uniform button for the cadets of the University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee. This is one of only three accepted style of uniform buttons worn by Tennessee troops during the Civil War. There is the Tennessee seal the Nashville Military College button and this pattern of button. This is the pattern listed as SU393b in Albert’s button book and as TNS260a1 in Tice’s button book. The center of the button has the two hands grasped in a handshake with a lined background. It has "ECCE” at the top and "QUAM BONUM” at the bottom. This is all surrounded by the wonderful " UNIVERSITY OF THE SOUTH” lettering. It has a superb amount of the original gold gilding to make the detail stand out. On the back of the button it has the original back and shank intact with the correct Scovill maker’s mark still visible. This is a very nice looking button and will fill that hole for the Tennessee button in your Civil War button collection.
