    Description

    George Washington: "Long Live the President" 1789 Brass Inaugural Coat Button. Another of the always popular Inaugural designs in great condition. Listed by DeWitt and Sullivan as GW 1789-7 and by Alphaeus Albert as WI-11A, this is a very sharp strike with just a hint of granularity to the surface. Diameter 34 mm. Original shank on verso. This example appears to have been cleaned at one time, but the toning is nice and has a light coloration.
