Shown below are a few of the Confederate uniform buttons I have dug over the years. Owing to their inability to manufacture buttons in the quantities needed by the Southern Patriots, Confederate leaders had to import many of their accouterments from England. The blockade of Southern ports many times prevented their delivery. Confederate uniform buttons are thus much scarcer than those of the barbarians.

More "droop wings"

A cavalry "C" and a Louisiana pelican button, more droop wings and a cadet button.
