This is an original non-excavated Civil War coat size uniform button from the state of Mississippi. This one has the likeness of the famous star in the center with the "C” in the middle for cavalry. Around the edge of the face it has the proud large letters that spell out " MISSISSIPPI”. It still retains some traces of the original gold gilding in the center of the "C” and around a few of the letters. These cavalry buttons are the toughest to find of the Mississippi letter buttons. The original back is present and the shank is solid as a rock. On the back of the button you can see the New Orleans retailer mark of the firm of Hyde & Goodrich. This pattern is listed in Albert's button book as MP3 and in Tice's button book as MP210A1. He states that these were part of the 1860 order by the New Orleans firm of Hyde & Goodrich. They had ordered these buttons from the famous Waterbury, Connecticut button maker of Scovill. This is a rare original Civil War Mississippi Cavalry coat button which is even more scarce in non-excavated condition.
