UNION GENERAL SERVICE EAGLE COAT BUTTON FROM THE MAC MASON COLLECTION

$29.50 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 408-286

Nice dug condition enlisted man’s coat button with good shank. Maker’s mark reads “WATERBURY BUTTON CO.” Very neat black ink printing on the edge of the back reads “NOELS STATION.”

This item comes from the collection of the late Mac Mason who along with W. Reid McKee wrote one of the earliest books on Civil War ammunition entitled “Civil War Projectiles.” Though their research has been surpassed by Dean and Jim Thomas their work is still a useful reference and Mr. Mason’s tell-tale handwriting on items from his collection make them very collectable.
