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?
