    Thanks everybody I would have never thought I would EVER find 1 GW button let alone 2. And the rarity on this style and size is just icing on the cake! R4 Rarity with 12-25 known? Probably more like 30-40 known but still 2/40 is not bad at all. And the condition is just a dream. Thanks again for the kind words, this just shows that they are still out there to find.

    By the by, here's my two remaining GW vest buttons. Light angle makes them look two different colors in photo but the one on the left is true tone.

    By the by, this is a photo of the still silvered GW button I dug a few years back -- and now being heavily bid upon by a couple buyers. It's not the most complex GW button (by far) but rarity and condition play into the collector value. I believe many GW buttons -- seemingly raw brass -- were once lightly silver plated. Why "lightly?" It was a simple time factor back then. These buttons were rushed out for the inauguration ceremonies. Back in the day, heavy plating took tons of time. The number of buttons ordered for the ceremony was huge. A silver dip was the best the many button producers could do. Also, these were not looked upon as timeless mementos but more like campaign buttons of today, thus many were thrown away when the silvering wore off.

    A big congratulations on your GW Cuff Button finds Jim!
    As somebody already mentioned, I bet there's more where that came from!
