Gorgeous Confederate Georgia non-dug button, dated "1861"

$225.00

Product Description

This is another nice Confederate item being offered, it is a coat-size Georgia button. It depicts the state seal of Georgia – a dome bearing "Constitution" supported by three pillars, "Wisdom", "Justice", and "Moderation".

It has a standup shank and backmark "W. G. MINTZER / PHILA 1861”. There are thoughts that this date may have been "back dated" to disguise sensitivity of supply from a northern producer to southern users. The actual producer is probably Steel & Johnson. This is one of the very few backmarks that has the date on them.

This button is a real beauty and comes in the very attractive wooden display case with glass top. This is part of the large collection I am working on that has numerous Confederate and Union buttons (non-dug and dug). This gorgeous button would almost be impossible to upgrade.
