Items shown on this page have no counterparts in the literature of period pieces.

Droop wing eagle button
Picture was submitted to CWC for evaluation 9/16/06
Editor note: This appears to be a modern reproduction, chemical aged. I am not aware of any Confederate buttons bearing this motif, nor any 1860's buttons with this type of back and shank.
