Superb sleeve button from a trooper of the 61st Regiment of Line commanded by Colonel Bouge. 5/8" diameter. Crisp with fine uniform bright green patina. The front mint-uncompromised. The back matching but for the slightest haze around the "bird cage" loop, caused by accumulation of soil, protected by the button, on the thick wool coat. Probably indicative of ten or more years service without cleaning the coat which was typical at the time. Ex. Waterloo Museum. As good as they get!
