    Re: Pics and a question

    Hello!

    Just a few questions here. Is the button a one-piece or two? What size is the button? If two piece, is it hinged, or does the back open from the front? On the back, if you can read it, what company manufactured the button? From the information that I have from my "Record of American Uniform And Historical Buttons" book, it looks like it is a Great Seal Button, two piece, type II. These are from beginning in 1902 and are typically "General Service" type buttons. Some of the Manufactures are H.V. Allien & Co./New York, Dusenbury & Schwab Inc./New York/229 4th Ave., Luxenberg/New York/Made in England, Rosenfield & Rapkin/Boston. Mass, Tiffany & Co. **M**/Makers/Bronze, Morry Luxenberg/London, Warnock Uniform Co/New York,Liberty Mfg. Co. Los Angeles. Cal, & Waterbury Button Co*/Conn.

    Good finds though!

    HH and good Luck!

    Work especially hard around doorways and the small are around them. Check along sidewalks if any, right up along the edges. Check areas between the house and the barn if one existed, any place to park a wagon or tie up a horse, etc. Monty

    One of the buttons is broken (the back missing) the front wrapped around the back. I cannot make out what the back of the other buttons say.

    Hello!

    I hate to tell you this, but "Eagle" buttons have been made from 1787 to present date. Do you have a pic? From my book, I didn't find that manufacturer at all, so it is likely to be after the early 1900's

    Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

    HH and good luck!

    Very nice finds,,WTG!!!
    I think I just saw one of those little guys on the Antiques Road Show a while back. He was on an old cast iron, antique car,(1919 get out and push type,, ) but they were probably used on several other vehicles as well...
    Good luck, & Happy hunting~

    Hello!

    From the looks of the button, I would say that you have a Great Seal Button, original date beginning 1902. Since there are many variations and manufacturer's of this type of button (at least 6 or 7 manufacturer's), it is most likely of this type. It is closest to #GI 102 in my book.

    Hope that this helps.

    HH and good luck!

    You just have a lot of work ahead of you, those kind of sites are always full of trash. But all of that trash is interesting, and some is valueable. Once you think you have an area cleaned up, crank up the power on your md and go over it again. Search the drive or path to where the mailbox was or is. and around the mail box. There are coins on that property, and you will find them.
