Continental Navy

Classed as Extremely Fine to About Uncirculated. Original shank.

Harold labeled this as part of the "Breeches Find" where 12 GW inaugurals were found on a pair of naval breeches along with three navy buttons. This is one of the naval buttons.

J. Doyle DeWitt purchased the breeches with one of the Eagle and Stars GW's still attached, as well as one of the navy buttons.

Sally Luscomb got one, and Harold got the last.

David F. Johnson and a Col. Campbell declared they were the first Continental Navy buttons found to date.

Purchased in 1961 from J.J. Goldberg (B.J. Johnson)
