    Description

    John Adams: An Extremely Rare Brass Portrait Cuff Button. Similar in flavor to the familiar, larger, round, George Washington Inaugural buttons, and quite possibly by the same maker. Profile of our second President, with "Jo Adams" below. Great condition with original shank. 10mm x 15mm brass. Please look for the similar George Washington cuff button we are selling from the Mahoney Collection.

    There are very few contemporary items of any kind honoring this president, and probably well under ten copies of this cuff button are known. A very special, if diminutive, piece. From the Brook Mahoney Collection of George Washington Inaugural Buttons.
