    Nice Gilt Davis Military School Button, Sportsman's Button & More!

    I got out to a beautiful plantation site yesterday for 4-5 hours & found a nice assortment of relics. The Davis School button is very cool, I didn't know the school existed until I found the button. It's interesting that the back mark is the school name. You learn a lot in this hobby! (A lot of buttons on those coats). Thanks for looking & HH!Click image for larger version.

    I use an iPhone in natural light when possible, then clean it up in Photoshop.

    First Davis School button I've seen posted on this site. Could you share a bit about the history of the school and the age of the button?

    Congrats,

    Buck

    Very nice button & other relics. I also appreciate the time you took to take your photos, label & display. Very nice. I do that at home for my display cases, but don't usually get that detailed on the forum site.
