    Found 10 buttons today at the bottom of a bag of junk. I think they may be Civil War. They are in excellent condition.
    4 buttons marked: Virginia Sic Semper Tyrannis; on back: Waterbury Co's Conn
    4 buttons: Eagle and stars; on back: Superior Quality
    1 button: Anchor and 3 Stars; on back: Firmin & Sons, London
    1 button: Profile of man. Text: "Docendo Discimus Exnihilo Nihil Fit" which translated means: "We learn by teaching. Out of nothing comes nothing."
    Any guesses on these buttons?
    Photos of front, back and close up.

      Post Civil War.

      Top row are VA State Seal buttons. Second row are USMC buttons.

      The one with the three stars, crescent and anchor might be Turkish. I have not found an exact match for it, but the Turks had one nearly identical but only one star.
