VERY FINE. THE ONLY RECORDED EXAMPLE OF THIS OUTSTANDING VIRGINIA PATRIOTIC DESIGN.
"Sic Semper Tyrannis" means "thus always to tyrants", which John Wilkes Booth yelled out to the audience during the shooting of Lincoln. (Give Me) "Liberty or Death" is of course the famous phrase attributed to Virginian Patrick Henry during the Revolution. All these elements combine to create a striking and unique Patriotic design.
