    More Texas buttons, and relics that was requested

    These buttons, and relics came from the same site. The Texas Marine Corp button lost its color, and is hard to see the TMC at the bottom of the button. I found it in the book A Search for Texas, 1836 - 1846. All the buttons came from this time period, except for some in the large frame. There's a US button in it that dates back to 1820, and lot of the flat button go to that time. There is a mixture of Old Texas relics, and other relics in the large frame. The pistol is an 1859 sharps. There are some large cents in it with a lot of punch marks. One coin is a 1797 george 111 cartwheel. There is also parts from a mexican rifle, the Brown Bess. Hope you enjoy.

    Re: More Texas buttons, and relics that was requested

    Thanks buckleboy for the info. I have heard of one that was found in Baytown Texas, and the one that's in the book, Then there's mine. Not to many of them has been found. I never see any of the Republic of Texas Army buttons either. I only have the one.

    The silver star object is a token. I don't think it that old. Some one probably dropped it out there, and I came along, and found it. I have two of them in the collection.
