French army buttons

Postby njslater » January 28th, 2017, 2:31 pm

Does anyone know of a online database of French Military buttons? There are a number of such sites detailing British army buttons and their makers enabling accurate dating of the button. However there seems to be nothing similar for French buttons. Buttons are frequently traded having been found by metal detectorists but the consistent claim to be "Napoleonic" is not always to be trusted. Being 19th Century or even late 18th Century does not a Napoleonic Wars article always make!
