Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very attractive excavated coat size general service U.S. coat button. This is the pattern used during the 1820's and 1830's. It has the bold "US" letters above a wreath and the spread wing flying eagle up above. This is the 1-piece style button and it has the original shank on the reverse. This one still has the maker's mark visible on the back. It has the early Scovill mark of "J.M.L. & W.H. SCOVILL * WATERBURY*" with the one ring going outside the letters and the three on the inside towards the shank. They used this mark during the late 1820's and early 1830's. This is the style listed as figure GI70 in Albert's book and GEN199 in Tice's book. This is a fine looking piece with the desirable Scovill maker mark.
