DUG CIVIL WAR NORTH CAROLINA 'SUNBURST' BUTTON

$49.50 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: R15747

This artifact is a fair example of a dug one-piece Confederate brass button as worn on the uniforms of many North Carolina soldiers. Face is heavily corroded but the eight-pointed rayed star, aka 'sunburst' pattern is still clearly evident. No letters "NC" visible in the center disc. As with most of the dug sunburst buttons, specimen is missing its shank. Button classed as a NC 13 in A. H. Albert's reference volume. This North Carolina sunburst button would add to any Civil War button display or to a North Carolina focused collection.
