    George Washington Inaugural Button?

    Found this today with Mike from 4-h and did quite the happy dance and am still shaking as I am typing this. Hope I am right about it being a George Washington Inaugural button c. 1789. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks Cheyenne. I am still in total shock about the historical relevance this holds let alone the possible value. God!

    Thanks searcher. I have included a pic of the back hoping that there would be something on it, but nothing I can see.

    Chris, CONGRATULATIONS! Couldn't have happened to a better chap. I'm sure you'll be doing that happy dance all week. Chris found this button in the most inconspicuous spot. This is Chris's second significant button find since weve been detecting together and I'm sure there will be more. You've got my banner vote! If this find dosen't make banner I don't know what will. Till next time! Mike

    Great find. My vote is in. BANNER all the way.

    By the way, there's another one like yours on the W & E banner on the bottom of this forum.

    Good Luck
