This is a great looking dug button. It is an original Civil War coat size uniform button for the state of Maryland. This is the version listed as MD11 in Albert’s button book and as MD200a4 in Tice’s button book. This is the correct Civil War version but with the backmark that reads "EXTRA * QUALITY *”. This version was made with this generic backmark so they could sell the button without advertising for the actual button maker. The face of the button has the Maryland state seal with a fine look. The seal shows the quartered coat of arms in the center with an eagle up above. There is a farmer supporting the shield from one side and the other side is held up by a fisherman. They both stand on ribbon with the motto of the state of Maryland in Latin. It reads "Crescite et Multiplicimini” which translates to "Increase and Multiply”. The word "MARYLAND” is in bold block letters across the bottom. The face of this button has a wonderful color. It has a nice amount of the original gold gilding remaining down in the recesses. This is a great Non-excavated Confederate coat button with the correct Civil War era mark.
