.925 Silver Union PENNSYLVANIA State Coat Of Arms Button Civil War Relic Pendant
This listing is for a very unique, hand-made sterling silver pendant, designed for Civil War relic hunters, metal detecting enthusiasts and history buffs in-general. My name is Leonard Short and I have combined my two careers of goldsmith/jewelry designer and artifact restoration to create a line of metal detecting jewelry. This pendant is a precision replica, modeled from a Union, Pennsylvania State Seal Militia button (Alberts PA18 / Tice PA203C) that was worn during the American Civil War by Pennsylvania troops, as the subject! This pendant is NOT an actual Civil-War period artifact!! These buttons would have been found mostly on officers' uniforms in the many different military units that served from Pennsylvania during the Civil War. This particular style of Pennsylvania pat of Arms button was one of numerous patterns that represented the State of Pennsylvania during the Civil War. This variant was manufactured by the Waterbury Button Company in Waterbury, Connecticut. The Coat of Arms design illustrated on the button was based on a 1778 design by Caleb Lownes of Philadelphia. The Coat of Arms design incorporates a central shield flanked with two horses: one on each side of the shield. The shield incorporates images of a sailing ship (symbolizing trade abroad), a plow (symbolizing State resources) and three sheaves of wheat (representing fertile fields). The shield is crested with an eagle and the eagle is holding a banner in its beak. The Coat of Arms design is superimposed on a lined background. 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. 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).
