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

At the expense of a 1 point penalty 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 cannot be repaired other than by merchants.


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


  • The Intelligence bonus gives +2 to the Science, Medicine and Repair skills (assuming you do not already have a 10 intelligence). 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 NPC disposition as 2 points of Charisma.
  • If worn, the effects screen in your pip-boy will label it as gentleman's demeanor.


Button's Wig appears in Fallout 3.
