Federal Period British 13th Light Dragoons Military Button
c. 1790 Federal Period. British Military Button. Marked “13 - L D” (13th Light Dragoons). With Original Shank. Very Fine.
This original Button is about 13/16” in diameter. The “13” is placed directly over the larger and very ornate, script design “L D” on the central portion of the face side. The detail is good and the surfaces and natural deep brown patina are original. This is the very first of this button design we have seen.
