This is a beautiful Civil War Confederate South Carolina State Seal 19mm coat button. This one has the palmetto tree on the face of the button with the "SC" lettering on the sides. It has the motto around the side. The motto reads "Animis Opibusque Parati” which translates as "Prepared in mind and Resources.” This is the style that was made by the Scovill firm just before the War. They used the generic backmark so that any retailer could sell the button without advertising for the actual maker. On the back of the button it has the remnants of the "EXTRA QUALITY” backmark. The back is intact and in fine shape but the shank is missing. The face has a superb amount of the gold gilt remaining in the recesses. This pattern is listed in Albert’s button book as SC15b and in Tice’s button book as CS262am7. This is a beautiful button that would be a superb addition to any collection.
