Ive been looking into putting together a small Revolutionary War display to go along with my WWII and Civil War collection. I found a few items to realize my idea.

The musket ball display is described in the Riker box they came in. The 2 buttons - on the left, a USA Continental Army enlisted mans button, on the right, a British 71st Regiment of Foot, Frasers Highlanders button. I added a W. Britains Continental Army soldier and a 71st Highlander soldier to round out the display.

Ive been getting back to reading and discovering more of the history of that conflict and I enjoy having a few articles that were there. I live near many of the important battlefields. Ill include a better photo (from the sellers website) of the USA buttons front and back. I hope to see more Rev War items from other collectors in this forum. Dunmore1774 just posted his fine musket!

 

Thanks for looking,

Frank

Nice little display! I've always wanted to make small displays for both revolutionary and Civil war to go next to my WW2 collection. Some day when I get the extra money,bi would like to get a Brown Bess and a M1860 rifle for the displays.

 

Well done.

Great display. I especially like the buttons. I can appreciate the historic nature of the musket balls, but buttons have more of an eye appeal.

Thanks for the comments! I’ve since added a few musket balls and grapeshot from the Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth Battlefields. All near me.
