No. 19 Majesty of the People

Classed as Very Good. Shank resoldered.

Only two known specimens. This one is worn and some of the features are difficult to see.

Credit: The drawing is from "Uniform Buttons, American Armed Forces 1784-1948 Vol. I", David F. Johnson 1948. This book also has 5 pages on George Washington Inaugurals.

Harold also had a photo of the other specimen in his notes, and it's in better shape. You can see the face on the sun on that one.

Extremely rare.

Purchased 1964 from Jack Martin. From the Andrew's Collection.
