Button--RESERVED--Rare Medium Size 19th C. Dark Horn Aerial Hot Air Balloon Sew-through
Measures 3/4" medium in very fine condition. I don't know if this is a uniform button (late 19th c. US Signal Corp) or just a commercial button from the mid- to late 19th c. Uniform buttons for aerialists would I am sure be made of non-reflective dark or black horn. I just don't know that specialty. I am pretty sure though it is not a Civil War uniform button. (Pick mark on back.)
