      << Sounds like an ACW button to me. The 41st, AFAIK, were only in Canada and
      nowhere near New Orleans or Maryland. I doubt any British infantry OR's wore
      brass buttons in this period. >>

      Until the Crimean War other ranks buttons were pewter. As has already been
      stated officers were either plated gold or silver.
