    Description

    George Washington: Exceptional "Eagle with Glory" Inaugural Button. Albert WI-15, 32 mm silvered brass. Retains original shank. The front side is magnificent! It retains 100% of the original silvering with gorgeous blue, orange and violet toning. It is highly unusual to find GW buttons that retain their original gilding or silvering. This rare example has it all and the lovely toning is icing on the cake! This has to be the prettiest GW button we have ever seen. The term "unimprovable condition" rings especially true here.
