Vicksburg Eagle Button Display

I put together a display design idea I've been working on for the past week.
I wanted to put some of my better eagle buttons into a different display other than your typical "throw relics in a case" look.

The eagle buttons all came from Union camps in Vicksburg campaign sites.
Buttons found in fields that come in contact with fertilizers sometimes come out green, like this center button in the display.
The contrast in colors actually makes it more eye-catching and shows better detail.


Some of the smaller buttons, like these hugging the inside of the circle design, went on coat cuff sleeves or kepi hats.

Thanks for letting me share my newest design with you!
