This one is a mystery. It came in a large grouping of relics I have had for many years and just haven't gotten around to parsing out. I can't tell you much about this. It appears to be an iron-backed device with a brass or copper front. It has a star-type emblem but I am not going to make up any stories about this being a Texas button or something like that. We'll save the tall tales for a certain online auction site!
There is an old price tag with this item that reads -- "Fd. Conf. Camp Louisiana" and it has a 45.00 price. I didn't pay anything close to that and you won't either. Could it be rare and valuable? I suppose. But it's most likely some sort of privately-purchased emblem and not something martially issued. The back is partially missing and there is no attachment instrument remaining. The relic itself is about a half-inch in diameter...just a tad bigger than the standard vest-size button.
This is a cool-looking piece but I am sorry I can't tell you what it is. If you know, drop me an email.
