Should this button have a back mark? Thanks, Robert

These are same pictures as on ebay right now listed as civil war. Looks like a reproduction to me. I think that is where Robert is looking at it.

I think the back is wrong, hence made after the civil war.

Yes, an ebay item I was watching. Thanks for the insight.
I was afraid you might be going to buy it. I am fairly certain it is not right so I would advise staying away. Lots of fake confederate stuff out there.
But, there is always a chance I am wrong, but I do not think so.

I think you're right smokey, it's a bit different.
Viewing the one in the reference and the one up for sale the shank hole is tight apposed to a rectangular cut out.
