This is a button that you very seldom get the opportunity to own. This is the cast one piece pewter vest size uniform button that was worn by member of the 2nd Infantry Regiment during the War of 1812. As you can imagine these buttons that are 200 years old and made of pewter have a very miniscule survival rate. This one is in beautiful excavated condition. The face of the button has the droop wing style Eagle with the regimental number in the oval below. This one has the "2R" inside of the oval which lets us know it was worn by the 2nd Regiment. It is the version listed as GI32RSv which has the stars going all the way around the button edge. On the reverse of the button it has the original cast shank attached as well. This button was found years ago at Fort San Marcos de Apalachee near Tallahassee. More importantly, this button is directly related to Jackson’s visit there in 1818 during the first Seminole War. This is one that would not easily be replaced so don't miss your opportunity.
