Here are TWO buttons from the Erie RR. These are authentic, railroad issued buttons documented in "Transportation Uniform Buttons, Vol. I Railroad" by Van Court. Both are the smaller (11/16") vest or sleeve size and both are backmarked SCOVILL MFG CO.
Both buttons have domed tops and strong raised lettering ERIE .
The brass button would have been found on a conductor's uniform. The nickel or nickel-plated (silver color) button would have been found on the uniform of an employee with a lower rank than conductor.
Both buttons have wire loop shanks securely soldered into the back.
Neither button has any damage, other than the usual light surface wear expected from service.
A nice addition to any collection of Pennsylvania or Northeast USA railway uniform items, especially buttons.
