(Sorry for the image quality. They looked in focus when I took them. I can take more images if you need.)

A collector's favorite, the solid cast infantry buttons, also known as Cast-I's, were issued late in the war. They were famously given to troops at the Dalton, GA camps where a good many were lost and subsequently found by relic hunters. Since they are solid cast they are almost always in good shape and with shanks.

This particular example is very nice condition. It has a dark patina with a hint of green. The prior collector's number "1" on the back can be easily removed if you'd like me to.

Unfortunately, unlike the other one we have listed, this button doesn't have provenance.
