This is an excavated rifleman’s “Eagle R” button. Cuff size. Straight shank remains. Horstmann & Co. NY backmark. Some ground action on the button overall but the “R” in the shield still stands out well. Recovered from an unrecorded area on the Gettysburg battlefield by Ken Bream.

This is from the Ken Bream collection that was sold at auction in October 2021. Mr. Bream was a 1970 graduate of Gettysburg High School and life-long relic hunter and collector. His parents managed the Stuckey’s Restaurant that was once located on the north-west corner of the intersection of Emmitsburg and Wheatfield Roads. In the late 1960s through the early 1970s Ken worked on the Eisenhower Farm as a groundskeeper, maintenance man, and general helper for the Eisenhower’s. For many years, he was the Gettysburg Dog Enforcement Officer.  This was lot #318.   [jet] [ph:L]
