Sterling Silver Confederate Script “C” Cavalry Button /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 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 an actual Confederate, English-Made Old English, or Script “C” cavalry button (Alberts CS130) that was worn during the American Civil War by many of the hard-fighting Confederate cavalry troopers! ---This pendant is NOT an actual Civil-War period artifact!! --- This variety of cavalry button was of highest die and material quality and the original buttons were produced in England (likely by the firm Smith, Kemp & Wright) for the Confederacy. These were brought into the Southern supply lines through use of the infamous Confederate Blockade runners from about 1863 through the end of the War. The design incorporates The a large old English letter “C” with a lined surface and superimposed on a smooth background. Though not considered extremely rare, these buttons are indeed a very scarce button that holds a place of esteem in any Civil War collector’s or relic hunter’s collection. 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).
