This is a beautiful non-excavated coat size California state seal button. This one has the state seal of the great state of California on the face with "EUREKA” meaning "I have found it” in Greek across the top. The California state seal shows the Goddess Minerva who symbolizes the quick movement to California statehood. California became a state without the usual time spent as a territory. It also shows the bear in the lower right which had been on the short lived California Republic flag. The sheaf of wheat and the grape are meant to represent California agricultural. On the left of the button it has the miner and sailing ships to represent the mining and commerce of California. It has a superb amount of the original gold remaining in just the right places to make the designs stand out. The original back and shank are intact and you can see the Waterbury Button Company backmark still visible. This is the style listed as CF2 in Albert’s button book and CF002a1 in Tice’s button book. This is a superb non-dug original Civil War California Uniform button.
