    Is this a Civil War dog tags?

    I was looking at CW ID badges on eBay and I ran across this. It says it’s a CW dog tag. They’re saying this is made of silver. Where there CW tags made of silver? Click image for larger version.

    I collect Andrew Jackson memorabilia and I remember buying this of a lady who said it was her husband’s who passed away. And all she knew was it was VERY OLD ANDREW JACKSON ID TAG TOKEN​. NICE CONDITION. MEASURES 23MM IN SIZE. MADE OF WHITE METAL because that’s all he had written down. I assumed it was a homemade Andrew Jackson token so I bought it from her. Can anyone tell me is this a legit CW dog tag that someone just put Andrew Jackson’s name on it? Click image for larger version.

    Judging from the type set, and knowing that there is a Richmond Street in Philadelphia, I have my doubts about this being a Civil War ID tag. It looks, to me, to be more likely a Patriotic piece from the late 1800's, similar in nature to this one:

    I think it is somebody's name on a token, also from the late 1800's

    Insurance companies use to give their customers ID tags .. some oval, some round, some clipped onto suspender straps, some fobs, and many of them had a patriotic theme.
