(1789) George Washington Inaugural Button, "Eagle and Star" Type, Albert WI-12C, Plain Reverse, Brass, Original Shank, Choice Extremely Fine.
35 mm. This design type George Washington Inaugural Button is of a major variety has 63 incuse dots or indentations forming a decorative design forming the outer border. There is a sharply detailed Patriotic American Federal Heraldic Eagle with Shield at its breast, with Arrows and Laurel Branch clutched in its Talons. One small scrape across the Laurel branch is mostly hidden in the design. The Eagle's Head is wisely turned towards the Laurel, which shows our country's preference for peace.
