Find of a life time

I went to the DIGSTOCK MINI 2021 IN NC a couple weeks ago. Met a great bunch of people and the event was very well organized. I dug a few nice items and this EAGLE V button. I never heard of one. Turns out it was made for one regiment for one year. 1847-1848 during the Mexican war. They started a regiment of mounted infantry. guess it did'nt work very well. supposed to be a rare button

Ron, Congrat's on the Save of the Eagle V' button. I had never heard of these either. You just helped to make this button even more rare, and have it for your display. Was the shank still attached to the buttons back? Very nice save.
