Early milita button

Found this neat button a few weeks back with the At Max. I got invited to hunt a Union campsite up in Caroline Co. Va. Thanks for looking

Nice button Hanover! Can you determine what it is? Regiment or what? I know Bullet Bob has a book on them. Maybe he'll pop in and give you some info.

Thanks, I have no idea as to regiment or anything. The guy I hunted with had found the usual NY buttons and a nice Rhode Island button along with some sharps bullets.

That's a great find Digger. I'd be interested to know who might have worn it---let us know if you get some info. Thanks for the look-see.

Hanover, that is a terrific find, congratulations. It’s probably listed in Alberts book of military buttons.
