This is a great 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 MD200b3 in Tice's button book. This is the correct Civil War version but with the backmark that reads "EXTRA * QUALITY *". This version was made by the Waterbury Button Company around 1860 according to Tice's book. 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 is completely untouched. It looks like it just came out of the soldier's attic. It has traces 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 maker's mark.
