    I can honestly say If you even move a shoe in her closet for a relic you find... Better have a comfy bed in that Man Cave! lol!

    I love relics, cars, bikes, artifacts etc myself and I have a Dynamite Diva Den...I don't want anyone messing with my stuff! HA!

    In case no one else has said it, congratulations on an excellent find! It wasn't that long ago you were asking about items you saw on the internet and was interested in buying them. Isn't it a million times better to find it?

    It was an honor to be with you today and see the look on your face and see your excitement when you unearthed that beautiful Louisiana Pelican button!!! To most it may not seem like such a big deal but for us Louisiana boy’s it’s like finding the “Golden Chalice” of buttons.

    Most Louisiana troops, as well as other southern state troops were moved to the north to fight where the main part of the war was taking place. One famous group of Louisiana troops were called “Lee’s Tiger’s or Lee's Tiger Brigade” but there were many more sent North, therefore it’s a once in a life time find for most of us down here to unearth a “Pelican Button”, especially one in that great of shape, with beautiful patina and an intact shank.

    Therefore, even though most may not agree with me, I’m voting “BANNER” on Truths “Pelican Button” because it’s so hard for us to find them down here, especially in that great of shape. I hope I have the support of those who know how hard Truth hunts and the great finds he posts, but this one is far above and beyond anything he’s posted in the past, at least in my opinion.

    Even if he doesn’t get Banner for the “Pelican Button” it’s going to get a “Banner Display” in our fledgling Historical Society that he’s helped me start and has participated in every educational function / event we’ve had displaying what few relics and historical artifacts we have, teaching kid’s as well as adults our hobby and explaining to them what our history was actually about and not what they’re being taught in the schools today. His button will be something these folks can actually see firsthand, an actual confederate artifact that was once worn on the uniform of a Louisiana soldier that was more than likely heading to the north to proudly fight for his state and a cause that he believed in.

    Truth, whether or not you get “Banner” here on T-net doesn’t matter in my book, even though I hope you do, because I feel you deserve it, you’ve definitely received banner in my eye’s and once again Congratulations and as I said before it was and honor to be there with you when you unearthed that beautiful Louisiana Pelican Button!!!

    Gentlemen .
    I concur on just how hard it is to find such a LA Button & in LA as most troops went NE , Ill dig until I find one or pass away along with a MS , SC , NC , AL , + & the condition is incredible for a 2019 find , Def, A Banner find , I love the pistol bullet as well . ( a beautiful patina-ed 44 cal Colt Army.).
