Unknown Button

Recommended Posts

While sheltering in place, I am keeping busy going through everything, rearranging, organizing, culling, selling a few things, etc. I've had this button for a while, don't know where or when I acquired it. Have not paid much attention to it until today, when I noticed the construction on the back of the button. New to me anyway, and since I'm not really a button guy, I'm seeking help here on the Forum. It measures .8 inches in diameter. Appears to be made of brass. Military? Old? New? Texas related? All help is much appreciated.

 

Thanks, Al

 

P.S. I don't want to reduce the size of the images, so this may come in several posts.

Texas and Mississippi both used single star buttons during the War of Southern Independence.

Thank you Lee. Any idea about the unusual rear side construction as a clue to who made it?

 

Thanks again, Al
