This lot of buttons came from a uniform lot for a 9th U.S. Cavalry officer Charles Josiah Stevens, USMA Class of 1877.   I held these back simply forgetting I had them, and until recently were buried away.

In the small box (2.5 x 6″) with the HENRY V. ALLIEN & CO. label, which most likely held shoulder straps, is a group of coat and cuff buttons by these makers:

  • 4   D. Evans coat buttons
  • 6   D. Evans cuff
  • 2   S. & J. .London coat
  • 1   S. & J. , London cuff
  • 1   Brooks Bros coat
  • 3   Horstmann Bros & Co. cuff

All are in  very good to fine + condition.  The London made button are two piece construction.  There are also included a set of buttons rings.

The box is in good condition with one side panel on the lid missing, with other end separated, but hanging from top panel.  Stevens has  a good record, Indian Wars service, went up San Juan Hill with the 9th.

Priced out for the button value alone.
