An excavated, coat size "CSA" Confederate uniform button.  This button has the rare and quite sought after "S. Buckley - Birmingham" backmark.  The button was recovered on private property near Bentonville, NC.  It has nice detail and a smooth, chocolate brown patina with shank intact, but, it does have a light push on its face.  The CSA letters still stand out nicely.

Nice looking excavated CS two-piece saber belt plate.  This buckle was recovered years ago at Weyanoke, Louisiana, which is located on Louisiana Highway 66, 12.2 miles north-northwest of St. Francisville.  The tongue and the wreath were dug at different sites, but fit together very well and have close enough brown patinas that the buckle displays very nicely.
