Brass Button for Army Officer's Shoulder Boards or Epaulettes, late 1800s - 1914.

In brass with gold finish, measures 22.0 mm in diameter. Domed construction; shows nicely detailed, sculptured Russian state emblem of Double-Headed Eagle. Features smooth edge. The reverse has maker's logo Buch in both Russian and Latin font and is marked "St. Petersburg. 1st Rate (quality)". The reference to St. Petersburg means that the button was made prior to WW1: in 1914, immediately after the outbreak of the Great War, the city was given a more Russian- sounding name Petrograd.)

The button is in outstanding, excellent condition, far better than the vast majority of original

In brass with gold finish, measures 22.0 mm in diameter. Domed construction; shows nicely detailed, sculptured Russian state emblem of Double-Headed Eagle. Features smooth edge.

The button is in outstanding, excellent condition, far better than the vast majority of original buttons that appear on the market (they are often dug-up relics that are heavily worn, rusted, have no gilt remaining, and have dents.) The gilt finish on the obverse is nice and bright, and the raised details show practically no wear. The edge is slightly uneven, but this is neither very noticeable nor detractive. The original loop is completely intact and sound.
