    Who made this GS button?

    I found this 2 piece General service button today but can't identify who made it. All i can make out is the word Sigmund.

    Any Ideas? If i can identify the manufacturer, i might be able to narrow down when it was made.

    Your "Great Seal" button dates from 1902-1910.
    Sigmund Eisner began making uniforms in 1898 and his backmark is found on many "Great Seal" buttons from 1902-1935. Your button does not have the raised rim so it is the early version as a rim was added in 1910.
    My wife does all the driving, I just hold the steering wheel.

    Even better! I knew it was going to be from 1902 to 1935 but this narrows it down even more. Thanks so much!
