Non-Excavated Union Infantry & Staff Buttons
Very Scarce Non-Excavated War of 1812 4th Infantry Regiment Button
Item #: v6609

Click image to enlarge
This is a button that you very seldom get the opportunity to own. This is the cast one piece pewter uniform button that was worn by member of the 4th Infantry Regiment during the war of 1812. As you can imagine these buttons that are 200 years old and made of pewter have a very miniscule survival rate. This one is in beautiful non-excavated condition. The face of the button has the droop wing style Eagle with the regimental number in the oval below. This one has the "4RT" inside of the oval which lets us know it was worn by the 4th Regiment. On the reverse of the button it has the original cast shank attached as well. You can still clearly see the makers Mark of the Crumpton firm cast into the back. William Crumpton was a very skilled button maker that was located in Burlington, New Jersey and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The records show that he produced buttons from 1807 until 1822. During this time it shows that he had contracts for infantry buttons from 1807 until 1809 and then again in 1811 and 1812. This is one that would not easily be replaced so don't miss your opportunity.

Scrace Philadelphia Backmark "US" General Service Coat Button GI30b
Item #: v6619

Click image to enlarge
This is a scarce original non-excavated uniform coat button from the 1820’s or 1830’s. You see them occasionally in excavated condition but when was the last time you saw a non-excavated 1 like this? This is the version with the small block style letters "US" on the face. This is the general service button from just after the War of 1812 era. We know this because of the maker’s mark on the reverse. It still reads "WP / Philada”. This is the mark of William Pinchin who took over the business of George Armitage around 1825 and made buttons for the U.S. army into the 1830’s. It is made of pewter and displays well. The US on the face is still vividly clear and is much better than most. This one has the original shank present on the reverse of the button. This piece is a variation of the style listed as GI30b in Albert’s button book. This is a nice and authentic "US" Uniform coat button with the scarce Philadelphia maker’s mark on the reverse.

Superb GI51J Coat Size War of 1812 Infantry with Overstamped Back
Item #: v6637

Click image to enlarge
This button is a rare beauty! This is the pattern that is listed as GI51J in Albert's button book. It has one of the most beautiful designs of any of the early United States buttons. At the top it has the flying Eagle with the banner that reads "PROPATRIA" which translates into "for one's country". Below the banner it has the crossed flags with the spear and shield design. Along the bottom it has "INFY" for the infantry branch of service. In the protected areas of the face of the button it still retain some of the original gold gilding from the factory. When you turn the button over you quickly see that the backmark of the button is one of the ones that was over stamped. This means there was one marking on the backmark and another was stamped at a later time. You can see the button had the generic back Mark of "LONDON TREBLE GILT" originally and then was over stamped by the firm of Aaron M. Peasley of Boston. In the backmark book it states that his are early buttons appear to have been struck on imported plain buttons. It shows that he worked as an engraver and die-sinker from at least 1810 to 1823. This pattern of button will fall in the 1812 timeframe. As you can see this one is exceptional from all angles.
