The Texas existed as republic from 1836 to 1845. This pattern features a raised star at center with an “I” for infantry and the words, “Republic of Texas” around the edge. Scovills filled a large order for these in 1837. They were originally silvered. This one shows an even chocolate patina with just a few light traces of silver next to the star at left. The back and shank are in place. The back shows a partially legible Scovill backmark. Many of these were worn by Texas troops in the Civil War. This one was excavated in central Virginia and although a precise connection to specific Confederate troops is impossible, Hood’s Texas brigade, serving in the Army of Northern Virginia, of course, comes to mind. This is a desirable button that displays very well.  [sr]
