.925 Confederate Army General Service "CSA" Button (CS81)Civil War Relic Pendant
This listing is for a very unique, hand-made pendant, designed for Civil War relic hunters, metal detecting enthusiasts and history buffs in-general. My name is Leonard Short and I have started a new business combining my two careers of goldsmith/jewelry designer and artifact restoration. This pendant is a precision replica, modeled from a Confederate Army General Service "CSA" button (Alberts CS81) that was worn during the American Civil War by enlisted soldiers throughout the Army...as the subject! This pendant is NOT an actual Civil-War period artifact!! The original buttons with this particular design are not the most rare of Confederate buttons, but nonetheless, they are very desirable among Civil War collectors because of the letters "CSA". The CS81 "CSA" buttons were manufactured in England during the Civil War by Smith & Wright in Birmingham. They made their way into Southern service by means of the infamous blockade runners. All details of this button's design are sharp and crisp in the execution of the silver pendant replica. The bail on this pendant is uniquely crafted with long-term wear in mind. It has an opening that measures 3mm x 6mm in order to accommodate a very substantial chain. In addition, the bail has my signature, hinge mechanism. If you are in need of a nice sterling silver chain on which to wear the pendant, please check out my other listings. My recommended chain style for my pendant line is a 2.5 mm diameter sterling silver wheat style chain. I have two listings: one for a 20" wheat and one for an 18". This is a unique pendant design that you will not find anywhere else! Shipping is $7.10 in the United States. (Other destinations will require a calculation on shipping).
