War Of 1812 U.s. 25th Regiment Of Infantry Officer Coat Button Sheffield Silver For Sale
Greetings, button collectors. I am now parting with the bulk of my personal collection. This is the result of twenty years of serious collecting. My interest has been in U.S. regular army buttons circa 1787-1848. If you are interested, the small handful of buttons seen in each item gallery will be available for a Buy-It-Now of $3,000, take it or leave it. Aside from that I am only keeping the buttons I relic-hunted myself. The buttons I will be listing over the next two weeks are in many cases not upgradeable. There is on these sales! Good luck, happy collecting and thank you for viewing my offerings. This lot consists of one uniform button. This War of 1812 button was discovered at Council Bluffs, Iowa along with the two Rifle Regiment buttons MANY years ago. All three buttons were in a remarkable state of preservation. The other Rifles button not listed can be viewed on the GeorgeWashingtonInauguralButtons site. This particular coatee size button has no shank. This button is not listed in the Albert's book. The "2" and the "5" appear to be different size dies. Was this originally a 5th Regiment button? If only this button could talk. Council Bluffs was a stopping point along the river on the way to Fort Atkinson Nebraska. The men who made their way out there after the War of 1812 were seasoned veterans pioneering into the extremely remote western wilderness. The button diameter is 25 mm. I cannot make out a backmark but I can see what looks like a chain-link border. Don't let this unique button get away from you.
