Click on an image to enlarge
This is an attractive looking excavated state seal uniform coat 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." This is one of the nice early ones that has the plane background where most of the later ones have the lined background. The original back and shank are present on the reverse. It has the maker's mark on the back in the depressed channel from the firm of Young, Smith and Company of New York. This is the button that is listed as figure SC226B2 in Tice's button book and SC4in Albert's button book. This is a little tougher to find backmark on this pattern of button. One thing that is special about this button is that it is one of the gold washed ones and it still retain trace some of the original gold on the button's face. For the last several years, this piece has been in the award winning South Carolina button collection of Mr. Jerry Kirkland. This one is in very fine excavated shape and will be a fine addition to your collection.
