    What a magnificent find! Congratulations are in order for sure! About the R-Value of 6 ...It must have a R Value greater than 6. Heck a general service button in Albert's book, of which there were many thousands or more, has an RV of one. The hard rubber general service buttons carry an RV of 20. I know there must have been way more rubber general service buttons out than there were George Washington buttons like yours. An R value of 6 must be incorrect unless I am missing something.

    In Albert's book the Washington Inaugural buttons were not assigned the RV number due to scarcity. Instead, they were given a rarity scale from R-1 to R-7. On this scale, an R-6 indicates 3-5 known specimens. Hope this helps....
