Group of US Eagle buttons from World War II camps

$45.00     Shipping Cost: $6*

Here is a collection of vintage World War II US Army Infantry buttons of various sizes and an early style hat/cap insignia. This emblem is the Great Seal which was adapted in 1902 and used by the US military and presidential shield. These were dug from 1943 training camps in middle Tennessee as young men were being instructed on war tactics prior to leaving for England and later the Normandy invasion (June 6, 1944), where many American lives were lost fighting for freedom. Th...is set includes overcoat, dress coat and one cuff button (5 retain much of their original gold gilt) and an early style hat insignia. Many M-1 Garand blank cartridges were dug within these camps as were silver coins, aluminum mess kits/canteens and various accouterments. I'll always remember one day when we were searching for civil war camps and I wandering into a Cedar grove. There sitting on top of a cedar stump was a steel army helmet. Just as it was left some many decades previously. This set of buttons would look great in a display frame or make an excellent gift for a young student of our nations history. How many of these original button owners never returned home after that fateful war? Price of $45 plus $6 shipping.
