NC 12

Excavated North Carolina Militia Coat Button. This "rare as hen's teeth" button is 21mm in size and displays a pine tree with a snake wrapped around the trunk on a lined field surrounded by a circle. The shank is absolutely perfect. This button is a Confederate local. Dug just a few years ago at an old home site near Salisbury, NC.

CS 128 Av

Excavated Confederate Cavalry Cuff Button. Very rare 13mm button with a Roman "C" on a lined field. B/m is present but not legibile due to ground action. Extremely rare button in this size.

Dug Confederate Cherokee Indian Nation Button. This button is 23mm and made of brass. It displays a 7-point star surrounded by three separated rings. "RICH GOLD * COLOR" b/m. Each point of the star represents the 7 clans of the NC Cherokee Indians. The 2nd Cherokee Mounted Rifles were formed in 1861 by Gen. Stand Watie and fought for the South during the war. The 2nd NC Cavalry also had several Cherokees. Very unique button.
