It is believed that this is an early post-Civil War veteran’s piece and not a wartime badge.

The obverse of this silver quarter shows Liberty seated holding a spear with a Liberty cap on the point in her left hand while with her right hand she supports a shield with “LIBERTY” written diagonally across its face. In an arc above the seated figure are 13 five-pointed stars. Below Liberty’s chair is the date “1853” flanked by arrows. The coin has solder residue at the 9 and 3 o’clock positions which may be evidence of a removed pin.

The reverse has been polished smooth and engraved “CO. G / 24 VA. VOLS. / Csa.”

The 24th Virginia served most of their time in Kemper’s Brigade of George Pickett’s Division in the Army of Northern Virginia. They were present at 1st Manassas, the Peninsula, Seven Days battles, 2nd Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Siege of Suffolk, Gettysburg, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Five Forks, Sailor’s Creek and Appomattox.  [ad]
