This is a fine original non-excavated state seal uniform vest button for the state of South Carolina. It has the palmetto tree on the face of the button with the motto around the side. The motto reads "Animis Opibusque Parati” which translates as "Prepared in mind and Resources.” The original back and shank are present on the reverse. It has a clear maker’s mark of Horstmann & Allien N.Y. This is the button that is listed as figure SC266 in Tice’s button book. It still retains a superb amount of the original gold gilding on the button’s face. This one is in gorgeous non-excavated shape and will be a fine addition to your collection.
