Button's wig is a unique piece of headwear in Fallout 3. In appearance, it resembles a powdered wig from the 17-18th centuries.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

At the expense of a -1 to Perception, it grants bonuses of 1 to Intelligence, 5 to Barter and 10 to Speech skills. It also provides a Damage Resistance of 1, but only can be repaired by merchants.

Location[edit | edit source]

The wig is found on top of Button Gwinnett's cabinet in the National Archives, near the end of the Stealing Independence quest.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Intelligence bonus gives +2 to the Science, Medicine and Repair skills (assuming Intelligence is not already 10). This is the only headgear other than Lincoln's hat that gives bonuses to these skills.
  • A bonus of 10 to Speech has about the same result to non-player character disposition as 2 points of Charisma.
  • If worn, the effects screen in the Pip-Boy will label it as "Gentleman's demeanor".
  • Despite Button wearing one of these wigs, the one he wears cannot be collected (it does not show up in his inventory).
  • While the wig itself does not appear in Fallout: New Vegas its effect "Gentleman's Demeanor" can still be found in the G.E.C.K..
