  • Description:

    This is a very rare militia period button. It is a Truro Rothsay Blues button tie clip. We are offering what is almost certainly a one of kind item. Dated 1862, this very rare button has been made into a tie clip 2 inches long stamped sterling. The button is 13/16 inches wide and dated 1862. This is only the second button we have ever seen for this small unit from Northern Nova Scotia. The other example is located in the local museum in Truro. The face of the button has excellent detail and could be returned to its original form by a good craftsman.
