Rare Backmark Dug Cuff Size Kentucky Military Institute Cadet Button
Item #: v5547

Click image to enlarge
This is a great looking button with a very scarce back Mark. It is the cuff size cadet button that was worn by a cadet of the Kentucky Military Institute. This is the version with the small rim which is considered as being Civil War production but Tice’s book doesn’t list this backmark. It has the retailer’s mark of "FK HASSAM BOSTON”. In the back Mark book by Bazelon & McGuinn they state that this firm was in business from 1847 only until 1865. Since they appear in no city directories after the Civil War we can deduce that this one is a true Civil War era Kentucky Military Institute uniform button. The eagle in the center of the buttons stands out quite well. It has the original gold gilding on the face of the button and you can still see part of the "K.M.I.” across the bottom.
