Click on an image to enlarge
This is a beautifully designed uniform button. This is the style known to collectors as the "Revenue Cutter" button. The Revenue Marine was established by Congress in 1790 to help prevent smuggling. In 1863 the name of the organization was changed to the Revenue Cutter Service. This group grew into what we now know as the Coast Guard that was named as such in 1915. This button pattern is listed as FD4 in Albert's button book and also as RM209a3 in Tice's button book. This one is in superb condition. It has 100% of the original gold gilding on the face of the button. The face of the button has a shield with balanced scales above a chevron. Below the chevron it has a key design. Above the shield it has the anchor design. The back of the button has the correct Civil War maker's mark of the famous firm of R&W Robinson firm of Attleboro, Massachusetts. This is a fantastic button all the way around and will be nice enough for nay collection.
