US CAVALRY “C” OFFICER’S JACKET BUTTON RECOVERED AT GETTYSBURG

$125.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 2023-3065

A wonderful Cavalry officer’s jacket button recovered on the grounds of the Lutheran Seminary on the 1st Day’s battlefield by local resident Ron Miller.  The button retains most of the original gilt finish on the face. Complete with shank; backmark reads, “Scovill MF’G Co. / Waterbury.”

Ron Miller was born and raised in Gettysburg; he was a 1953 graduate of Gettysburg High School and 1957 graduate of Shippensburg University. Ron served in the United States Army Reserves and was employed by the local school district, mainly at the Keefauver Elementary School for 36 years, where most of the Small family children went to school when Ron was the principal.

Ron’s brother Edward or “Ed”, also of Gettysburg, was a very avid relic hunter in and around Gettysburg, amassing a large local relic collection of artifacts. Known to many local people in the collection community, his collection has been featured in many books. Ed’s interest in relic hunting became his brother Ron’s passion, and he also amassed a large Gettysburg collection. Ron hunted mainly on the First Day’s battlefield, west of town where he lived. Ron passed away in January 2006. His family retained the collection until recently when most of it was sold at public auction.  [SR][ph:L]
