    That is a crazy good, insanely rare, and an iconic Confederate button. More Confederate staff officer buttons are posted than example of the CSN. I am going to vote banner on this one, and I won't even ask you to pay me five bucks to do so.

    That is rare as everyone says. The condition is fantastic. Was it near the Tennessee river or do you think the guy maybe came home with it. Very cool find and congratulations. Glad you shared it with us!

    I talked to a local expert and he advised that during mid to late war the Army of Tennessee were issued Confederate Naval jackets due to the lack of clothing for the troops. Apparently they were issued to some Confederate infantry units in the army of TN but mainly middle Tennessee. He told me that troops around the Dalton GA area also received some of these jackets as some of the same buttons were found in that area. He also said that every one that has been found in this area has the same Hebbert backmark. I am most surprised to hear that it was infantry because this area was on the far left flank of Bragg's army and most camps in this area are cavalry camps. Now I am gonna do some research and see if I can find which specific units if possible. The rebs didn't have great documentation so don't know if that is possible. I know of two other buttons just like this one that have been found in the same area.
