    According to Tice there are only four known versions of a Confederate button with wings pointed upwards. Your version was made in the south and not imported from France or Britain.

    That is a very hard to get button. Great save.

    Here's the back. There's nothing left on it that I can make out.

    It was a cool find! I don't know exactly how old it is but, there was little to no modern trash in the area.

    I'm beginning to think it was fyrffytr1.

    That said The CS 'Local ' Staff is incredible !! must have been hiding under a Tree . IMO It could not look much better (dug)
    & that the sheet Iron back is still there , Heck Yea.

    In my Alberts book , I think it's CS Local 18 A , with 13 Stars?.

    Man I'd leave that one as is
    , I'm excited typing this.

    I never found a CS Staff of any type & That one you dug is just bad Arse.
    Banner Vote in.

    & From Ga Too....Oh nice GS Staff also.

    Thanks for the info! I washed off with warm water and applied a mixture of white glue and water to the rear of the button to aid in keeping it from falling apart.

    Man I'm so Sorry, I don't think much before I post , When I Filled out the Banner Comments , I was thinking of you & stated "It could not have been found by a more Deserving Digger" .. If that Helps?

    I can come down , Plant on 2-3 inches down PM you & give you a Square Mile or 2 to search in.
    It could take you awhile to find it (if ever) then you could say your truly Found one. Kinda

    It's like you know the Silver /Gold is in an area / You just gotta find it.

    Tho I'm happy for GaRebel , I had really hoped it was you that dug it.

    As you know not a Ton of Confederate Buttons are Found in SW Ga, Esp, below Columbus or Macon.

    I'm truly Sorry if I made you look bad.

    Still think it was under a Tree, & Sandy Soil does help, that back is pristine compared to the Quarter inch of rust on my Couple Tin-back 'I's

    Yes sir, Hence" Confederate Local"... Tho the other Styles from Across the Pond have Backmark's & seem to be worth more.
    Personally In that condition I rather have one Made In The Southern US.

    Where is the Banner, I'd rather dig that button than a Common $1 Gold Coin.

    Sorry for Cluttering up your Post. but I dug an almost Similar Knife in a US Calvary Camp last Spring.

    Is the Metal Silver? or Brass ? mine was Brass & a good 4-5 inches Closed.
    I later saw a Similar 'Un-dug' one on E-bey saying it was CW Period.

    My Goodness ..I need to learn to post pictures,

    Good to know that another one was found at a civil war site. Mine is made of brass.

    I've never seen one posted here before. To be honest, I'd never seen this type of button before I dug this one. I thought at first it was a U.S. eagle button but, it just didn't look quite right. I then brushed the dirt away a little more and saw the C.S. on the shield. That's as far as it got cleaned off in the field. Thank you for the banner vote too!
