Confederate rifleman stippled block "R" button, English wartime manufacture


Product Description

This is another exceedingly rare button being offered; it is an original Confederate Rifleman coat-size stippled block “R” button. It was manufactured in England and smuggled through the blockade. Riflemen were generally marksmen or sharpshooters. The backmark is "H T & B / (star) MANCHESTER (star)" dm on a very flat back, outer ring of dots. These flat backs tended to loosen and rotate, but this one is still tight with a standup shank. Ref: Albert CS201A, Tice CSR200A1

These well manufactured buttons were lightly gold-washed and this one retains a beautiful untouched patina. A quality Confederate button such as this would be very difficult, if not impossible, to upgrade.
