Details: 2Pcs This lot consists of 6 Confederate South Carolina Civil War uniform buttons mounted on green felt in a wooden frame as well as one cufflink with the same face as the buttons.

Buttons are mounted too tightly to read, but buttons do have backmarks.
Buttons measure .5" to .9" in diameter.
