This one is a beautiful original coat size 33mm version of the Civil War Confederate Navy button. This is the style that was made intended to be used on the C.S.S. Texas but before they could the ship was confiscated and sold by the English. They have the anchor in the center atop of 2 crossed cannons. Below the anchor and cannon are the magic letters "CN” for Confederate States Navy. The border of the button has the rope-like design all the way around. These buttons were designed to look like the U.S. navy coat button of the Goodyear patent. It has an excellent look that gives it a superb display. The backmark is the correct Civil War maker’s mark version of "COURTNEY & TENNENT . / CHARLESTON. S. C./ MANTON’S PATENT” with a swan design. This is the pattern listed as figure CS60 in Albert’s button book and CSN222A1 in Tice’s button book. This is a wonderful and rare original Confederate coat size navy button.
This is a beautiful Confederate coat button for the infantry branch of service. This is the classic solid cast version that was often worn by the Confederate foot soldier. The front of the button has the block style "I” that can be seen from across the room. This pattern of Confederate button is listed in Albert’s button books as CS184 and in Tice’s button book it is figure CSI275. It has a brownish patina on the back with the front having been cleaned which shows the pretty copper color patina to the metal. This is a great looking original Confederate cast "I” button.
