Confederate Excavated State Buttons
Rare Excavated Civil War 2nd Arkansas Regimental Coat Button AK6
Item #: A894

Click image to enlarge
This is a rare excavated Civil War uniform button for the state of Arkansas. These are one of the most coveted of all Civil War uniform buttons. This is one of the most desirable of all Civil War uniform buttons. This is the one that was made for the 2nd Regiment of Arkansas Infantry. The buttons are 22.5mm in size. These buttons were produced by the New Orleans, Louisiana firm of Casimir Rouyer. One version shows up with their maker mark and the other is like this one that is unmarked with a blank channel. The front of the button has a large five pointed star in the center. Around the edge it read "C.S.A 2D ARK. RGT." Just outside of the lettering it has a rope like design. These buttons were produced of thin brass and become damaged very easily. Pristine versions of this button are almost nonexistent. As you see this one has the usual push to the face but the face still retains a superb amount of the original silver wash that is almost always missing entirely. This is the style listed as figure AK6 in Albert’s button book and AK250a2 in Tice’s button book. This is great looking button that is a rare as they come.

The Most Desirable of all Confederate Buttons J.E.B. Stuart Coat Button CS144
Item #: A419

Click image to enlarge
This is the best known and desirable of all Confederate buttons. That is a direct quote from Tice’s button book. This is the pattern listed as figure CS144 in Albert’s button book and CS250a in Tice’s book. It is the pattern known to collectors as the "JE.B. Stuart” Button. It has always been reported that these buttons were made for J.E.B. Stuart and a select few of his men but I have never seen documentation to back that up. The button has the "CSA” letters around the top. There is a first national pattern Confederate flag in the center and below it has the crossed cavalry sabers. It ahs the push to the face as almost all of these patterns have and that fact is even notated in Tice’s book. When this one was excavated the fragile zinc back and brass shank was missing in action so we had both of them restored for display purposes. A non-excavated button like this once brought well over $40,000.00. You can own this very attractive displaying button for less than 15% of that price.
