    CW Botton??? Not sure

    I found this in a backyard of a town that was occupied at one point during the war. Is this a CW button from Rhode Island? How can a person tell for sure? I am new on CW relics, so any information is appreciated. Does it have any value? I gave it to a friend of mine before realizing it might be CW.

    It's either Navy or Coast Guard, they use the anchor.

    The backmark will date it - but - I don't have a book.

    Check this button... almost at the bottom of the page, also a scovill button.

    The anchor is part of the state's seal

    Thanks guys. Alabear...I am a button rookie. What does RV1 mean? Is it Retail Value $1? Just curious, as I gave it to a friend.

    Any button is a good button to me. But it is Post Civil War.

    Rhode Island State Seal button. Backmark 1880-1920.

    RV stands for Relative Value. The higher the number the rarer. RV1 would mean it was very common.

    An AK1 (Arkansas State Seal Button) has an RV100 with a "Hyde & Goodrich/NO" , the "Horstmann & Allien/NY" is an RV 85.
    Both are very uncommon and command a large $$$.

    The KY button in my Avatar is a KY1-D and is an RV 15. It's worth about $600-$800 retail.
