We continue to experience intermittent delivery of order emails, so it's wise to email us directly at cwbullet@hotmail.com and carl@sitherwood.com to be sure your order gets through. Thank you for your patience while we try to address this.

M00363 - Novelty Rubber Button (Goodyear Patent)

Item Number: M00363

Price: $35

Provenance: US

Model: Button

Type: Hard Rubber

Book:

Location Recovered: Unknown

Description:A period button made of hard rubber by the Novelty Button Company using Goodyear's patent to harden the rubber. These buttons were great for troops as they didn't corrode or rust or reflect light to an enemy. Buttons made like this were very common to the naval troops. This button face is plain and may or may not have been military used. The dark chocolate brown look makes it appear to have been dug but I don't know it was. The back is very clearly marked:
Novelty Rubber Co.
Goodyear's Patent
1861
The face is very clear and in good shape. A nice example at a good price to have in your button collection.
