Welcome to the new 2011 George Washington inaugural button reference site for collectors & enthusiasts. This site's main goal is to help people find out all the history and information they can on 1789 or 1793 George Washington inaugural buttons, and other Washington medalets. My goal is to make this information available to everyone interested in the field of American Politicana.
The various George Washington Inaugural Buttons are displayed by each of the 27 known Varieties, which in-turn contain the 52 known Sub-Varieties. Finding your button, or the one you are researching should be easy with our picture reference layout. This site's main goal is to give the clearest possible images, so making identification and matching buttons in our archives straightforward and uncomplicated. Over the last 20 years, the influx of new treasure hunter finds with Metal Detectors has turned up an unprecedented & undocumented number of George Washington inaugural buttons and medalets. This site will allow for these new buttons to be properly documented.
