This is the 1-piece button that was used by the artillery of the state of New York. It is the pattern listed as NY19 in Albert’s button book and as NY209c1 in Tice’s button book. The face of the button has a beautiful flying eagle with a shield coming from her beak. Above her it has the "EXCELSIOR” motto and around the bottom it has "NATIONAL GUARD”. The ribbon below the shield has the "N.Y.S.A.” for New York State Artillery. It has the original shank present as you see in the picture. The maker mark is from the famous firm of Robinson & Jones and reads "ROBINSONS, JONES & CO / * A *" in a raised mark between two pairs of rings. This is a nice backmark to have on this button because we know the six-year period when it would've been made. The Robinson, Jones and Company firm were only in business from 1828 until November 24, 1834 when Jones sold his portion of the business. This is a very nice displaying non-excavated 1-piece coat button.
