Confederate Excavated State Buttons
Very Scarce Dug Cuff Size CS Made North Carolina State Seal Button
Item #: L4282

Click image to enlarge
Here is one that you very seldom see offered for sale. It is the rare cuff size version of this button. This is a very nice looking original excavated Confederate made Civil War cuff button for the state of North Carolina. It has the famous North Carolina state seal on the face of the button with the "NORTH CAROLINAĒ across the top edge. The great seal of North Carolina depicts the female figures, Liberty and Plenty. Liberty is holding a liberty pole with her right hand and in her left is a scroll inscribed "Constitution". Plenty grasps a cornucopia with her left hand and wheat with her right hand. The face of this has a nice untouched patina with the figures being clearly visible on the face. These were well made buttons made in the Confederacy for use by the North Carolina troops. The reverse of the button has the original back and shank nicely intact. This is one of the better variations that they made. It was made without a maker mark and production location in the channel of the back but it does have the single star in the channel. Authorities say this is the mark of the firm of Wildt & Klein of Columbus, South Carolina. This is the pattern listed as figure NC8 in Albertís button book and NC210Cs1 in Ticeís button book. The verbal history that accompanied the button is that it was recovered years ago in a Confederate campsite in Fredericksburg, Virginia. This button shows fine Confederate workmanship and will be a solid addition to any Confederate button collection.

Extremely Rare Louisiana Madison Infantry Button JEFF DAVIS' BODYGUARD
Item #: L4150

Click image to enlarge
This is one of the rarest buttons that you will get a chance to own! It is the coat button that was worn by a member of the Madison Infantry of Madison Parish, Louisiana. They served as Company A, 4th Battalion Louisiana Infantry. When they first made it up to Virginia they served as bodyguards for Jefferson Davis. Then they guarded Libby Prison and then were sent to defend Savannah, Georgia. In 1863 they went back towards home to fight at Jackson, Mississippi and then at Vicksburg. Later that year they went to fight at Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge. The next years saw more fierce fighting at Resaca, New Hope and Jonesboro. That is covering some territory! The buttons were made by Bellenot and Ulrich of New Orleans. Since New Orleans fell into Union hands early on there were few of these ever made and even fewer survive. You can still see traces of their backmark on the reverse of the button. The button has stars around the face with 'MADISON INFANTRY" and in the center of the button it has their motto of "MEET US". Most of the time you can't see the wording clearly but this one is a beauty. It even has faint traces of the original gilding on the button face.The reverse of the button has the original back and shank intact and they are in fine condition. This pattern is listed as LA30 in Albert's button book and as LA284 in Tice's book. Don't miss this scarce excavated piece of Louisiana history!
