    Bingham School Button? NC

    Found along Shermanís 1865 route (and thus the Confederate retreat route) in Eastern North Carolina. I think itís a Bingham School button from Mebane, NC. Iíve seen some disagreement about whether the block letters are pre or post war. Iíve found other Confederate items in the same area (NC sunburst buttons, for example) so I think thereís a chance itís the right period.


    No back, so no backmark to check. Any info or opinions are welcome

    I don't have any info on the button, but it's good to hear from a fellow Eastern NC. detector. Very nice find!

    I have one of the CW buttons, they have script lettering on them. (I bought it.) Can you post a picture of the back?

    No back on it - just this front (which obviously still has some mud.) A back would help.

    update - heard from a guy I know who has found over 50 of these - he says postwar for the block letters. A little disappointing but that may be the verdict unless I can find one with a definitive backmark.
