19th C. USA Military Brass Buttons, Bullet, & Caps (15)
Item Details
Description
North America, United States, Colorado & Connecticut, ca. 19th century CE. A collection of 12 military brass uniform buttons, 1 lead bullet, and 2 spent caps- all displayed in modern Riker cases. The lead bullet has a conical profile, and the 2 copper percussion caps have the flared lips, spent from holding the explosive powder in percussion guns. The brass eagle emblem buttons represent general military service were purportedly collected from Fort Cedar Point, a militia fort about 80 miles east of Denver. The other case contains brass buttons from uniforms during the Indian Wars: a general service (the eagle with a flat lined shield), cavalry (eagle with a "C"), and infantry (eagle with "I"). The versos of these 3 buttons are discernable- the general service has the Waterbury Connecticut Scoville Manufacturing mark of raised letters in a slightly depressed channel, and the other two are stamped "EXTRA QUALITY" around the button loop. Size (large button): 0.8" L (2 cm); (first case): 5" L x 4" W (12.7 cm x 10.2 cm); (second case): 5.25" L x 6" W (13.3 cm x 15.2 cm)
