Charlie Prince Jacket Buttons from 3:10 to Yuma

This is a pretty small update but I thought it was worth noting as I haven’t seen anyone else positively ID the buttons on Charlie Prince’s jacket.

While I am not 100% sure of the size, the button on Charlie’s jacket appear to be Royal Army Pay Corps (RAPC) buttons which include a lion over a crown over a scroll which reads “Fide et Fiducia” which means “By fidelity and confidence” or ” trust and be trusted” which is seems fittingly ironic.

Anyway, you can find these buttons and knockoffs all over the net, from eBay to reenactment sites to private collectors.

UPDATE: A friend recently pointed out that there are two main variations of this button; a “king’s crown” (1928-1952) version and a “queen’s crown (post-1953) version. Charlie’s jacket has the king’s crown version of the button, which is usually considered a WW2 button.

    I’m having this jacket made and that was some good information on the buttons. Do you happen to know what material the jacket is? Looks like “smoke” elk hide, or cow. Not sure.
