Though hardly rare, these buttons are not encountered quite as often as the two-piece Eagle "I" buttons of the post-Civil War era.  At first glace, the button looks like the standard Infantry button of the period, but on closer inspection, one can easily see that the Eagle device is actually a third, separate piece applied to the button. I am not sure when this innovation was introduced or how effective it was.  But it certainly is an interesting example of how button construction evolved.
 
This particular button is coat-size, in excellent non-dug condition. It would be a wise addition to any Indian War or general button collection.
