Vintage Rare 1800’s ENAMEL Cufflinks Civil war stars 1960’s
For all the cufflink collectors out there, I think you will be impressed with the enameling on these as well as the raised 11 stars . THe background on an 11 star flag puts this in the late 1800’s. (There would have been 7 stars from 4 March 1861 until 7 May 1861, when Virginia became the 8th Confederate State by Act of Congress. Thereafter, the number of stars continued to increase until Tennessee gained her seat as the 11th State on 2 July 1861. The number remained 11 through the summer, but increased when Missouri and Kentucky were admitted to the CSA by Acts of Congress approved 28 November 1861 and 10 December 1861, respectively.) These measure 1” long ( each oblong piece).I am not sure of the silver content of these and they need cleaning on the backs.
