Click on an image to enlarge
This is the first one of these scarce buttons that we have ever been able to offer and it is a beauty! This is the button that is listed in Albert's button book as MS60 and in Tice's button book as MS116A1. Tice states how this flat 1-piece button would have been made around 1816. The center of the button has the Eagle design with the "E PLURIBUS UNUM" national motto. It has two other ribbons with the first being "MONSTRAT VIAM" that translates as "HE SHOWS THE WAY" and the other is the title "INDEPENDENT CADETS". It also has the image of the flag of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts that is inscribed "INSTI 1786". This button is in beautiful non-excavated condition and has a gorgeous amount of the original gold gilding remaining. On the back of the button it has the original shank nicely intact. You see the backmark of "TREBLE GILT" on the reverse. This one is a fantastic piece.
