Found my first Confederate button today!

I was so excited to see this pop out of the ground! I just got permission to hunt this property earlier this week, and today was my first time out detecting. I also found a few percussion caps and piece of buck shot. A great day detecting to say the least!

I don’t see any markings on the back, the shank has broken off. I don’t know if the button is suppose to be a one or two piece?

Ok, it is a one piece button, no back mark of any kind.

Congrats! How did you clean it? It looks great.
I used a toothpick to clean all the crevices and lightly used a worn out toothbrush under warm water. I have several yankee buttons with guilt remaining, but nothing like this one!

That is absolutely a breath taking find. I would still be trying to catch my breath. A big congratulations.

Had to edit my above post. I don’t realize my phone had changed some of the words. And it didn’t even make since. Lol
