An exceptionally nice non-dug coat-size example of a two-piece brass button as worn on the uniforms of the cadets at the Virginia Military Academy in Lexington, VA. This handsome button is of two-piece construction with a braided rope border and retains over 98% of original gold gilt on the face. The circular, 21-mm brass button sports the Virginia Military Academy seal with Virtus dressed in a helmet standing victoriously over the prostrate form of Tyranny. Raised block letters ‘C A D E T‘ are shown above Virtus, with the letters ‘V.M.I.’ appearing below her form. The back side of this example is in nice condition with a strong intact shank. The backmark is the desirable D. EVANS & CO. / ATTLEBORO within a pennant. Per McGuinn & Bazelon’s American Military Button Makers this backmark dates in the 1850s. A nice item for the Confederate enthusiasts as Civil War site excavations have yielded numerous examples of this backmark. We have a small number of these Virginia Military Institute buttons and are pricing them here individually for the collector who would like one. Don't forget to give our search feature a try for special wants. A simple key word in lower case works best.
