Plain Copper - Copper buttons were commonly used in the late 18th C. on civilian and militia frock coats. They tended to be large, often 1 inch or 1.25 inch diameter with a soldered wire loop shank. Originals have been found in military camps, militia camps in western Massachusetts, and on original garments. Being copper they could easily be stamped or engraved with designs, as are some originals. These reproductions are 1.25 inch diameter and 0.05 inch thick - same thickness as a dime. Approx 26 of this size could be used on a frock coat: 10 in front, 3 on each pocket, 3 on each cuff, 1 on each hip, 1 on each pleat. $1.75 each or a bag of 30 for $45.
