ANTIQUE BRASS VMI MILITARY ACADEMY UNIFORM BUTTON! I am offering for auction an ANTIQUE BRASS MILITARY ACADEMY BUTTON from VIRGINIA MILITARY ACADEMY - VMI. The card on which it is mounted says "WEST POINT OF THE SOUTH". The front of the button depicts soldier bearing arms and the words "CADET" "VMI". The button is approximately 3/4" in diameter. I am not a collector and have no further information as to age or origin. This button was among items from a family estate. My husband's grandmother was an avid button collector in the 40's and 50's and this button was among the items that belonged to her. Item is sold AS IS. No returns or refunds.
