    Confederate Reunion Souvenir

    Hi All,

    I dug this souvenir close to downtown Dallas on Sunday. It’s a souvenir from the United Confederate Veterans 9th annual reunion held in Charleston SC May 10-13 1899. The one I found has traces of silver plating and in missing the hanger that says “souvenir”. It was minted by Schwabb and Sons Co Milwaukee. Not bad for Dallas eh?

    That is a good find no matter where it was found, but finding anything in the city of Dallas is pretty tough in that asphalt jungle! I found a GAR veterens badge a couple months ago.

    Nice save there...and great shape
    My philosophy is: It's none of my business what people say of me and think of me. I am what I am and do what I do. I expect nothing and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier.
