I recently dug this very rare LOUISIANA STATE SEAL button at an old plantation site in Bedford, Va.... It was the gathering site of some good ole Confederate soldiers with an LA regiment known to have passed thru... It still sports a little of the original dirt (I do minimal cleaning) that surrounded it for nearly 160 years. The last to touch this one (besides me digging it up) was likely the soldier himself.It has a nice legible backmark, "Horstmann & Allien / NY" and measures about 23mm...
