Location Recovered: Moss Neck, VA Winter Camp

Description:
The 1862-63 winter camp at Moss Neck, VA, which is near the Rappahannock River just west of Fredericksburg, gave up this very nice Block I Tin Back button. The face is near perfect with great dark patina. The "I" is nice and clear. These buttons are very hard to find with a good back as the tin often rusted away in short order. This back is solid though rusty with a great brass shank that while bent slightly still stands mostly straight and is not loose. Definitely a better example than most we see.
