    WHOA CW RELIC! WHAT IS IT?!

    Found this today in Rogersville Tennessee. 1 Eagles holding an anchor while the other one looks like a general service coat button. They are attached with hooks and clasps. I was very surprised when I pulled it out of the hole to see that it was still in pretty good condition and together. Anyone ever seen one before or have any idea what it is?Click image for larger version.

    So are the buttons original period or repros made for the belt?

    Jason in Enid asked:
    ""So are the buttons original period or repros made for the belt?

    The pieces you found aren't actually buttons. So I guess the most accurate answer to your question is, they are reproductions. Button emblem stamping dies were used to make the pieces of the belt. The dies were being used to make buttons in the same years the belts were being manufactured, and in some cases for a while after the button's emblem were discontinued.

    That being said, remember, the "eagle button" emblem on your belt pieces was used from 1854 to 1875, and that particular version of US Navy emblem was used from the 1850s until 1941.
