    Confederate Navy Officers button (CSN) & The bloody Scarificator!!!

    I scored a few pretty neat finds the last couple of days folks.
    The first one is an early 1800's bloodletting tool called a "Scarificator", with emphasis on the "SCAR" part. Please check it out on my "what is it" post:
    http://forum.treasurenet.com/index.php/topic,217365.0.html

    Yesterday I finished up the yard where I had found the 1864 double die IH about a week ago. Well, I was on my last section of the back yard and about ready to call it quits, when I dug a button. I threw it in my pouch and headed for home. Today at lunch I took it out, rinsed it and saw the letters "CSN" and a large anchor. I got home and cleaned it up using Buckles button cleaning technique with a dry toothpick on the back and some Naval Jelly (seemed fitting too ) on the front. As you can see she is a BEAUTY!!! It has almost all of the gold gilt still on it too.
    It is a 23mm two piece w/shank. The back mark has "Firmin & Sons , 153 Strand London , & 13 Conduit St."
    It is listed in Albert's book as #CS52A. I believe it is mid 1800's, but please correct me if I am wrong.
    Any idea of the value of this button?
    I think this is my best button find so far.

    Other finds were:

    *A small decorative locket.

    *Broken earring (yes, I broke it!)

    *#29 Matchbox firetruck. Any idea on the year?

    *A very hilarious dog vaccine tag with " UNSEXED - Female Dog - Virg... " (Virgin or Virginia )
    I'll hold my comments on this one.

    Thanks for looking,
    MM

    Thanks Chris.
    It has some dirt still on it, but I didn't want to over clean it and ruin it.
