    CIVIL WAR DOG TAG!

    So today I got out of work a little early so I decided to swing by a cellar hole close to home. The only nice thing that came from this site was a pretty Civil War CT seal button. Somethin told me today I better get up there and see what kind of signals I can get with my new machine. And check this out! I thought it was a Condor token, or New Jersey copper at first being that it is the same size as a large copper....but even better! Civil War Dog Tags....Against Rebellion 1861. Using my ancient chinese cleaning secret she polished up pretty good. This is a very exciting find for me....however, I was kind of let down not being able to find a name or initials on the back.....I think they may have been there but I may have destroyed them. This is now one of my all time favorite relics! Thanks for lookin folks!

    interesting. i just assumed when i saw it that it would be modern penny size,
    because it looks like a civil war token.
    looks like one was posted in '10 and was nominated quite a bit for banner.
    i think your'e due. BANNER!

    Re: CIVIL WAR DOG TAG!

    Actually if you look closely at the back you can see what looks like letters along the inner rim. Maybe if you can get a rubbing of the back there might be enough there from the impressions to recreate the name and unit. Maybe just maybe,


    I would love to find one of those.

    Great find!!! The back looks like it had a harder life than the front.
