    It's a BANNER BUTTON!
    Thanks. I have an ID. I know what the button is, I am just hoping to get more info. Specifically I am wondering how rare it is exactly...how many are known to be in collections. I am also wondering if the button is in fact 1 of only 300 made. I am very interested to know what the National Button Bulletin has to say about this button as well and I am hoping to get my hands on a copy, or find someone who has a copy and can provide me with the info.

    Re: Found a Very Rare Military Button!

    Congrats Colonial on what may be a very rare banner find!

    Have you already contacted the National Button Society. Maybe if you sent one of them a pic, they may do the research for you....

    Wow what a great find, and the condition is awesome.

    Need to follow this one but certainly a banner find / W&E Best I'd say if it turns out to be so rare.

    Congrats
