This is a rare circa 1880s or 1890s United States Marine Corps enlisted man shako helmet button. The center of the button shows an eagle flying with an anchor clutched in its talons.
Approximately 1” in diameter.
This is from a United States Marine Corps collection which we will be listing more of over the next few months. VEJX13 LAGEX3/13
7+ (Very Fine+): The button shows some light wear and tarnish.
As with all my items, this piece is guaranteed original.
