    Ugh...not again. You THINK it shows a 123...but it doesn't. As stated previously, the guy holding it in his hands who can manipulate it under different lighting conditions and angles and view it under a jewellers loop can confirm there is NO 123....but I guess some just won't let it die.

    I would be happy if there was a 123 as I would have a variety of button never before found...but it's simply not the case.

    OK, apologies in advance, but as upsetting as this may be to some, I am going to continue to harp on the "Phantom 123", These do not look like they are intended to be part of the buttons design, but look more like "mold numbers" probably intended to identify a sample as the "One over two over three cannon balls" design. A digital camera will pick up details not visible to the naked eye. How 'bout posting a link to some raw digital images of the non existant numbered area...

    Thanks very much. I think it can simply be chalked up to people who like to stir the pot.

    Anyhow, thanks again. It's one of those finds I will never forget making.

    Or maybe they put a "123" there so these buttons could be used for the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd Regiment of Artillery!!

    Are you going to post a link to a raw digital image or not.

    This is really weird that more emphasis is being placed on denying an observation rather than exploring it...

    I am particularly disappointed in Crusaders snide pot shot. Most of the posts by this member have, in the past, struck me as quite mature.

    First of all, no I am not. The pictures you see are what you get. I am in Afghanistan currently and will be here until Christmas.
    That being said, there is no 123. I own the button, have examined it closely, there is no 123. I am fully capable of examining relics closely, and have handled thousands. If there was a 123 on the button, I would see it. It's not there...period. Find a new relic to make imaginary claims about.

    What a wonderful find! I have to ask, what is the significance of have 123 on it if it did have it? Does that mean it is fake or what?

    Re: Found a Very Rare Military Button! NEW INFO ADDED 11 Aug 10

    Thanks...who knows!? There has never been one found with 123 on it...or heard of...it was just conjured up in someones imagintion in this thread. I am sure some wanted to point out the non-existant 123 in hopes of taking it's authenticity away...
