Nice button that appears to have spent some time in the ground but retains some gilt in the center. Appears to be copper but could also be brass. Original shank on reverse which has been clipped at some point in the past to reveal base metal presumable for testing of the metal. Small letters script in the center and the relative positioning of the lettering "Long Live The President" surrounding it is different that other linked states buttons we have seen. We think this is a period button but we are not 100% sure. Expected thin disk. Much lower starting bid to reflect this and estimates at market for others sold.
