This button is a rare piece! This is the pattern that is listed as GI53R1A in Albert's button book. It has one of the most beautiful designs of any of the early United States buttons. At the top it has the spread wing Eagle with the banner that reads "E PLURIBUS UNUM" which translates into "OF MANY, ONE". Obove the banner it has the "U.S.I." which stands for United States Infantry. Below the eagle it has the "REGt" lettering. In the protected areas of the face of the button it still retain some of the original silver from the factory. When you turn the button over you quickly see that the backmark of the button is one of the ones that was backmarked by the firm of Hugh Wishart. The backmark book states that he was in business from 1784 until 1822. It also has the original shank intact as well. As you can see this one displays well from all angles.
