I found it where I have found all my War of 1812 buttons. But it was probably just a civilian button I don?t know

It looks like a 3 piece button, is that right? If so made after 1835 and its toast.

Great save is right. What you have found is the state of La Pelican button and surely dates Civil War. I can point out details if you need but the bottom pic is the front and I clearly see the wings at 10 and 12 o'clock. Rough but still a good relic.

Looking at that last picture, I also think I see a bird on it. Probably a Pelican.

Hey Va Dave please point out the details for me it?s very rare to find a pelican button in Louisiana since all of our boys went to Virginia BUT I was lucky to find on at the same place. [emoji631] PNG image 5.png

Looks like this LA Local I found here in Va. Arrows at 10 and 12 o'clock point to wings and you can kind of see the bent neck/head to the right in between. The bottom arrow points to what's left of the nest.

Thank you for taking the time out to drop some great news on me. I?ve been struggling lately so this gives me hope [emoji631]
