    C.S. Button

    I got a chance to get out and hunt yesterday an old home site here in Southwest Georgia. The farmer had recently pulled out the trees of a wooded area to enlarge his field and I'm sure glad he did. I found an eagle cuff button and about twenty feet away was this coat sized C.S. button. This is a two piece and the back was made of iron or tin and is there but badly rusted. Civil War buttons are hard to come by down here as there was no fighting. I assume someone wore it home or perhaps passed through here. Had the bulldozer blade been a half inch lower, I wouldn't have had a very good looking find. I didn't find any coins (yet) but, plan to be back out there this afternoon.

    Nice find GaRebel! Everything I can find says that button (eagle with CS) is a "Confederate Staff Officer Button."

    I could not recall if it was GaRebel1861 or fyrffytr1 that had never found a Confederate button.
    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.

    I already feel bad enough. Now, you have to remind everyone that I have never found one! And, to make matters worse GaReb is the only one allowed on this site anymore.

    That is one outstanding button and banner material for sure. I once found a cuff button on a CW site that had an iron back totally rusted but had the understanding that iron backs are post CW. Anybody out there who can weigh in on that? What does your button back look like? I would hit it hard and try finding more of them, very desirable button indeed

    That is an incredibly rare Confederate button in amazing condition. It is definitely banner worthy, and it is probably worth a truckload of money.

    Has that style ever been posted to TreasureNet before?

    This should be on the banner by now. GaReb, post the pocket knife and other buttons you found. That is the fanciest knife I have seen.
