This is an original Civil War belt buckle from the state of Virginia. This is the version of Virginia belt buckle that is illustrated on page #234 in the revised edition of Mullinax' buckle book as figure #432. On the face of the buckle it has the wreath branches on each side and in the middle it has the bold "VIRGINIA” lettering on the ribbon banner at the bottom. In the center it has the great seal of the state of Virginia. 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 the motto of Virginia around the edge of "SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS" which is Latin and translates as "Thus unto tyrants". As you can see this one displays well but it has 2 nicely cut holes along the left hand edge. On the back of the stamped brass buckle it is missing the keeper hook intact as well as the bar they attached the belt top the other side of the buckle. What is neat about this buckle is the two holes. These buckles originally came on a web cotton belt and often the bar on the back of the buckle would break off. The soldier still needed a belt an buckle. SO he used his cub scout skills and cut two holes in the buckle so he could sew it onto the belt and keep using it. That would have worked until the keeper hook broke off and he discarded it. This is an original Civil War Virginia state seal belt buckle that displays quite well and doesn't cost 2 fortunes.
