    Cavalry Officer Eagle 'Flat' Button Bucket Lister!

    Dug this button last month and only gave it a cursory clean at the time. Boredom and freezing weather made me pull out my buttons for a better clean-up.
    The soft bristle brush and toothpick revealed an eagle with C in the shield. The back says Steele & Johnson.
    My bucket list included a cavalry or infanty officers coat button and I had one all along!
    I would have sworn it was a flat button but I think it's probably a smashed two-piece.

    Good save. It is a smashed 2 piece, however, it is very possible it was smashed during the Civil War for use as a poker chip.

    That's the plan. I have other military general service and the coat-of-arms livery button that were all dug in a concentrated area of a massive field. They will all go into a framed display. Want to add more but have to wait until the Missouri frozen tundra thaws a bit.
