Title Customs officer's button
Nationality British
Period c 1823-1837
Sold

This button can be dated because the Customs was formed as a single entity by Act of Parliament in 1823, but also because of the Georgian crown (Queen Victoria came to the throne in 1837), its size (16mm) and its one-piece construction. It is maker marked on the reverse: 'J.McGOWAN . LONDON'.

It is made of brass, which has about 70% of its gilding remaining to the face, with the original copper shank to the rear slightly distorted.
