This is a beautiful non-excavated Civil War coat size button for the state of Virginia. On the face is the classic Virginia state seal in the center with "VIRGINIA” at the top and "SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS”. This is the motto of Virginia which translates to "THUS UNTO TYRANTS”. The button has a wonderful look with a nice amount of the original silver with the brass button highlights making the detail stand out superbly. These silvered buttons have the copper face instead of brass because the silver would hold onto the copper better than onto brass. The original back and shank is present with the correct and desirable pre-Civil War era backmark of "* WM. H. SMITH & CO * NEW-YORK" with a stippled channel. This is the version and this style is listed as VA9 in Albert’s button book and VA219A3 in Tice’s button book. This is a fantastic silvered Civil War Virginia state seal coat button.
