I’ll try to do my part but I don’t have much to offer not a lot of civil war activity in my area, it was just in the process of transferring from the Osage to whites at that time. I had no idea what I found till I took it home and cleaned it up a bit, totally unexpected find and one of my favorites.

Nice button, there is a real good chance it dates to the civil war.

Awesome thanks for the information I couldn’t remember if it was truly civil war or if the date extended into the Indian wars.

Yes I agree & also thought the backmark was not a common one (in my mind ) .

Nice C button there.
