    Davis & Bryan: Profoundly Rare and Important 1¼" Jugate Button. Second only to the Cox & Roosevelt jugate in desirability are the Davis & Bryan jugates of 1924. There are actually fewer designs for Davis & Bryan than for Cox & Roosevelt. In both cases, the 1¼" examples command a substantial premium over the 7/8" varieties. Three different designs of Davis & Bryan jugates are known to exist in 1¼" size, with perhaps eight to ten total copies identified. Over the years, we have handled at least a dozen Cox & Roosevelt jugates, but this is only the third 1¼" Davis & Bryan. The present example comes from the legendary Mark Jacobs find of the 1980s, and was obtained directly from Mark by Geary Vlk. This design is also found in 7/8" size, and all specimens we have seen were on the light side. While the present example is a bit light as well, it is in fact stronger than most, and is in otherwise essentially mint condition. A tremendous opportunity for the serious jugate specialist.

    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.
