Thread: Eagle Button and coin purse

    Eagle Button and coin purse

    It had been several years since I last found a Civil War uniform button, but I found 2 this month.

    Looks to be a general service button. No back mark.



    I got excited when I dug the remains of a coin purse, but no coins to be found.

    Nice Eagle button! Not common without a back mark in my opinion.

    Looks to have the shank intact too! Was this the same site as the last one?

    I hear you Dan. I've found a few but none with coinage.
