Sell Your George Washington Inaugural Button

George Washington, a national hero by the end of the Revolutionary War, is believed to be the most popular president to take office. His inauguration of 1789 as the first president of the U.S. was a monumental historical event that some artisans memorialized with the production of patriotic clothing buttons. Some of these buttons contained an engraving of the phrase “long live the president” and others had George Washington’s initials, patriotic symbols such as an eagle or designs that symbolized the original thirteen colonies.

We at Nate D. Sanders Auctions sold a George Washington coat button from his first inauguration for $2,928. Please see details below:
