A relic of Sir John Franklin's last expedition 1845-1848. Four plain brass buttons obtained from the Inuit at Repulse Bay in 1854 by the Rae Expedition. The Inuit said they had obtained the material from a camp to the north west of the mouth of the Back River where a party of Europeans had died of starvation. The buttons are domed with traces of thread attached. The items are shown in the drawing by Edward Pulleyn (AAA3972).
