Albert – Record of American Uniform and Historical Buttons

It is very frustrating to have a detecting find that you either can’t identify or are unsure of the rarity or value.  Sure the forums and Facebook can help you identify items, but nothing gives you more confidence than looking it up yourself in “the book”.   These are the books serious collectors keep and refer to for identifying items commonly found on the battlefield.  These books are considered authorities that are accepted by collectors everywhere.

button_bookThe “button book” is the go to identification guide for Civil War buttons and all other types of American military buttons and other historical buttons.  Albert does a great job of organizing the buttons in a way that makes them as easy to find as possible.

    Those are all great books. I also have many others including a book on collecting old locks, several marble ID books, many bottle ID books, the Stanley Phillips books on civil war relics, 3 different books on revolutionary war and colonial era relics, and plenty of others. As a matter of fact, I probably have too many books on ID’ing the different things that we find.
