    WOW!

    A perfect example of the very rare button from the uniform of the Revolutionary War Provincial Parachutists.

    Can't believe Iron Patch missed the mark on this one..............

    Thanks to Doublet2a for posting a correctly oriented photo. Above the two parachutes depicted, we should see lightly foliated script letting PP.
