Pulled up a tiny Federal Artillery button. no back mark. very thin shank .
this site has several Federal artillery buttons with the cannon, but not one that matches this one. so not sure of the make or time period.
( note how the cannon back comes away from the wheel. it is not like any of the ones featured on the site. ) ID help welcome ...

also pulled two more thimbles.
a few other odd pieces, and a horseshoe .

it appears to be the second button in the pic . AV
the way the back of the cannon comes straight down off the wheel .
the button is in pretty rough shape, not able to make out many of the features.
i`ll try and do a light cleaning to it and see if anything pops out ...
thank you very much for the ID help. Yes

Look at the angle of the head and the long straight line of the left wing. ie. how far the wing starts away from the body.

There will always be slight variation as different manufacturers had different molds.

Cool button regardless !!

yep, i see what you are eyeballing on the wing. what was throwing me off is the button is so tiny. like the second one, but it does appear more like button #3.


thanks again for the help. i would never get some of my finds ID`d if it wasn`t for you and the rest of the group ... so thank you again Ron and everyone for all the help over the past months . Yes

Generally where are they hitting on the ET, in the coin range?

Ron, great I.D. Wink
