I posted this pic in 2 different areas without realizing what I had. Not a lot of info on the Internet. After researching, these were propaganda Patriots buttons they would wear in defiance of the British. These were made about the same time as the GW inaugural buttons. I seen where there were only a few in existence. Mass. Virginia, SC, and now Kentucky! I was fighting the 90 degree heat. It rang up 35 VDI on my whites MX Sport. Same as large pull tab. I knew it was significant but didnt know how so until the wee hours of the morning researching. My best find EVER!
