Gorgeous 1789 ‘Linked States’ inaugural button
Description                           Estimate: $2,500+          

Gorgeous example of the ‘Linked States’ variety of buttons created in 1789 to honor George Washington’s first inauguration, measuring 34mm in diameter, featuring the ornate monogram “GW” in the center encircled by “Long Live the President.” The initials of the thirteen states form a linked chain around the border. The button features a handsome deep chocolate overall patina and the well-struck design is attractively gilded. Nicely framed with a description to an overall size of 10.5 x 15. In fine condition. Of the many types of buttons commemorating the first president’s inauguration, this is one of the most prized and attractive varieties. A superb piece symbolic of the patriotic spirit engendered within the infant republic as Washington took office.
