    Well done and Banner worthy indeed... and just in time for St. Patrick's Day, too!

    I've never seen another Union Greens button, and doubt I'll ever see a better one.

    What a find. Congrats on the banner.

    THANKS and Updated with confirmation information!

    Thanks for the Banner TNetters! It is hard to think that I would ever be posting a 1797 Half Cent in decent shape and not have it in the title as previously mentioned, but this button did excite me much more so than the Half Cent, which is a super find but not unusual as the Union Greens button.

    Nice to see buttons get the recognition they deserve, since they are so much a part of history, more so than most coins.

    Speaking of the 1797, Hogge wanted to know the variety, well, there are three varieties for 1797 and mine is the more common one found, a Cohen 3a, Rarity 3. In fact it is my second Cohen 3a and I do have Cohen 1 and 2 also, now just to find Cohen 3b and 3c!

    Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to update with some more information on the Irish unit of Union Greens, if I can get through to the right person at the Baltimore Historical Society.

    But I did get basically confirmation information from a book on the Irish in America.

    The book that mentions the Union Greens and the symbol of the US Eagle with the Harp under the wing and it is on Google The book is titled: UNITED IRISHMEN, UNITED STATES by David A Wilson

    http://books.google.com/books?id=I2N...esult#PPA73,M1

    On Page 79 in United Irishmen, by David A Wilson; it mentions that in 1807 the Irish were angered with the British over many atrocities being committed against them and thus the Irish started joining American militia units and raised companies of their own.
    One of the companies formed in Baltimore was the UNION GREENS, whose banner of green depicted an eagle protecting a harp beneath its spreading wing.

    Thanks again for banner recognition and hopefully I can get more information on the history behind the militia unit known as the UNION GREENS.

    Wow, Don, that's an Awesome button find!

    I bet you never thought about finding that item. That's what is so exciting about our hobby....You just never know what you're going to find, especially out in the Woods!!

    Congrats on the Banner, and on your Liberty Cap!! Well deserved. When you find something that special and out of the ordinary, you will never forget it.

    And so ironic, considering the holiday this Tues.!!
