    Ellinghaus button

    A short hunt today on the frozen field. Small sections of the slopes were thawed and passed the shovel easily. Now and then a little more stomping was required to pry the frozen plug.

    Some clad, two buttons and a medal in a couple hours.

    One button is a tombac, the other is perhaps late 19th century and bears the name of the tailor shop in Baltimore "F.W. Ellinghaus". Record of his shop appears in two Maryland 19th century journals and a 1913 Polk directory for Baltimore. In 1900, the Ellinghaus family lived at 12 N. Ann St in Baltimore. Frederick Wilhelm Ellinghaus was born in Germany and arrived in the U.S. in 1860.

    Finding a button with some identifying marking like this one is a real treasure to me with the opportunity to research the people behind the button.

    That Ellinghaus button and your documentation is over-the-top cool! I love it! Is the other one a tombac or a flat "dandy-style" button? The religious medal is "Miraculous" ..so to speak!

    Thx Lilo! This is the deep-freeze winter in Baltimore. We haven't been shut out like this for a few seasons.
