Description

    George Washington: The Rare "Dotted Script" 1789 Inaugural Clothing Button. One of the most distinctive and desirable varieties, and in wonderful condition. Listed by Alphaeus Albert as WI 9A. A very fine example with smooth surfaces and attractive light brass color. Although Heritage has sold literally dozens of Washington inaugural buttons over the years, this is but the third "dotted script" example we have handled. Diameter 35 mm, original shank on verso. Pictured in Arthur Schlesinger's Running for President: The Candidates and Their Images, 1789-1896 p. 3.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
