Z5956 "Charlestown Artillery” Button of Massachusetts (MS38)
Description: Scarce and early one-piece button attributed to the "Charlestown Artillery” of Massachusetts. This button features an eagle facing right, perched upon an upward facing cannon. There are 15 cannonballs under the sponge and worm and 18 six-pointed stars encircling. This example appears to have had the shank ground off at some point. The details on the face are visible with wear to the highest points. There are traces of gilt in and around the eagle and cannon. This unit was officially founded in the late 1780’s per online resources. I’ve seen a few excavated examples with generic backmarks. If I had to take a guess on a date, I would think late 1790’s-1810+/-.
Measures: 24.13 mm
Reference: Albert MS83A variant
