This is a tough to find original Civil War 2-piece Virginia sword belt buckle. This is a lesser detailed version of the belt buckle that is illustrated as Plate #423 on page #229 of the revised edition of the Mullinax book on Confederate Belt Buckles & Plates. It is also pictured in Howard Crouch's book. This one has the wreath that is similar to the style like James Smith of New York was producing before the Civil War. This is the style that was finely crafted for the well-to-do Virginians before the war and this style has been excavated in Civil War Confederate campsites and positions. It has the solid cast tongue. The center disk of the buckle has the Virginia seal. The Virginia seal which shows Virtus holding a spear in one hand and a sword in the other hand. She is standing with Tyranny at her feet. It also has a small portion of the motto of Virginia still visible around the top edge of "SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS" which is Latin and translates as "Thus unto tyrants". The verbal history is that this buckle was found in Central Virginia. This buckle came from the award winning collection of Don Phillips. His Confederate Belt Buckle display won numerous awards at the biggest Civil War shows across the country. This is your chance to own a buckle from his "Best of Show" award winning collection. This is a very nice looking original Virginia state seal 2-piece sword belt buckle.
