Non-Excavated Union Infantry & Staff Buttons
Beautiful Gilded Excavated Union General Service Button
Item #: v8404

Click image to enlarge
This is a common style button with an uncommon look. It is the standard general service style coat buttons that were so often worn by the fighting men of the Civil War. It has the eagle on the front with the shield on her chest. In one talon she holds the arrows of war and in the other the olive branch of peace. What is special about this button is that it is one of the ones that were gold gilded at the factory. This is a good bit tougher to find than the ones that were just polished brass. This one retains a superb amount of the original gold gilding. The verbal history that accompanied this button is that it was recovered in North Carolina. It is in fine excavated condition and displays well.
