• Golden Age 1800s ANTIQUE BUTTON #3, Brass Gilt w/ Maker Name, T.S & J.D.

Vintage antique brass button that was produced during the golden age of the early to mid 1800s. This early button is a brass gilt style, with the maker's name / quality mark on the back. This one is marked: T.S & J.D. - Gold Lace. Please refer to the ruler pictured in the image for the exact size of the button. Overall condition: Solid VG+..... The button may have tarnished a bit with age, or have slight surface wear -- but there are no cracks, chips, or other major flaws. It is in very nice shape and will display quite nicely. See attached photos for more detail on the condition. ***************************************** PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT an expert on vintage buttons. My mom -- Nancy Moran -- was a longtime member of the National Button Society, plus was active in several local button clubs in New York. She is downsizing, so I am helping her sell some of her collection. But I am not familiar with all the terminology and intricacies of button collecting. I try to use various notes she left with the buttons to describe them to the best of my ability, but understand that any terms I use in describing these items, are not terms I am familiar or experienced with. So please use the attached images to form your own opinions. I am also not knowledgeable on the hobby criteria in condition grading -- so I use my condition grades in a commonsense manner -- as if grading any collectible -- they are not based on any hobby standards. Please contact me if you have specific questions, and I will answer them as best I can.
