     Nice W.M. I buttons Rob!  As I'm sure you know, the WMI moved from Kentucky to Nashville for a few years before the Civil War started.  Then the school closed and most (all?) of the boy cadets joined the Confederacy.   My small collection of WMI coat and cuff buttons is attached.  Several years ago I was fortunate enough to be able to hunt at the site of the old school in Nashville, and recovered 12 complete buttons and a fragment of another.  I found the other 2 WMI buttons  at other sites in Middle Tennessee.  All are of the more common SU 431 variety, except for 2, which are SU 429.

Wow .. That is a wonderful collection! Thanks for sharing that with us! I'll bet that was a dig you will never forget!
May I ask what backmarks your buttons show?
