Original Confederate Civil War button made for the state of North Carolina. This is the style referred to by collectors as the "Sunburst" because of the rays coming out from the center of the button. The center has the letters "NC. These buttons were designed with just a simple shank soldered onto the back which came off very easily. This is the version listed as MC15 in Albert's button book and as MC239 in Tice's button book. This one has its shank which makes it an extremely rare find. Measures 7/8 inches across. In very good as found ground dug condition.
I got a chair from my grandmother with carved dragons on it. After searching everywhere, I found the same chair on your website. I thought it looked Asian, but had no idea how valuable it is! I almost sold it to a friend for a hundred bucks. I am so glad I used your site to learn how much it's worth! Your price guide is such a great tool! Thanks Again!!
