    Louisiana Civil War Navy Button - Maybe

    My dad found this in Northeast Louisiana near Lake Providence, Louisiana. I believe it might be a Confederate Navy button. There was a lot of activity in the area, because we are close to the Mississippi River. It could even be French colonial, but it is brass two piece and is constructed more like Civil War buttons I've seen. The two fleur de lis are the real odd things. There are no other markings.

    Thanks!

    Good call, IronSpike!


    Here's a link to a similar (although not identical) "blazer" / fashion button from the Waterbury online catalog:

    I will agree with the others, a civilian fashion button. I dont believe it could be military, definitely not Confederate.
