There is traces of the original gold gilding remaining on the button face and some more on the reverse. In the center of the 14.5mm cuff button it has the flat style star. On the back of the button it has the original back and shank intact. This is the tough to find version that was made by C. Bellenot of New Orleans. On the back of the button it still retains the original shank. These are listed as MP5av in Albert’s button book and as MP230as1 in Tice’s book. Since New Orleans fell so early in the Civil War there were very few of these buttons ever made and even fewer survive. These smaller size buttons are much tougher to find than their coat size counter parts. This is a beautiful and rare Confederate made Mississippi cuff button!
