    With some of the green still on the back I just need to dip it in acetone to halt the corrosion. Now that the back is readable no more cleaning is necessary

    Superb find I don't care who you are! A Civil War ID tag has been in my top five for years now and I'm still looking for one. This find would make my year!

    An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

    cool find !

    I found Several Caleb Fosters through out he U.S. including one who was a Slave.
    but only one in pa.
    Unfortunately, I Can't Translate

    and no proof it is the same one.



    I think I see Caleb Foster melder which would be "Caleb Foster Reports" .
    and last 3 of the Paragraph "apparently not remembered"

    But I can't for the Life of Me pick out enough words with all the Squiggly Letters .
    It hurts my Brain.
    The Scranton Wochenblatt,(week sheet ) edited and published by Friederich Wagner, was a weekly German language newspaper, published in Scranton, Pennsylvania, from January 1865 through August 1918. ... Wagner learned the printing trade from Robert Baur of Wilkes-Barre ..

    I haven't decided yet. Might sell or might keep it. Leaning towards keeping it.

    I know we have discussions all the time about returning class-rings that are worth about $100. But it is way hard to consider giving away a piece that could bring from $1500-$2000

    And I believe that most people would care less about a tag from their great great possibly great grandfather. It takes a special person (like us) to appreciate what the dog tag represents and the history behind it

    I agree,in most cases if they don't see dollars , odds are they would throw it in a drawer

    Got my vote for banner!

    That is really a great find. I agree with the above; family member would either sell it or stick it in a drawer. Keep it or sell it, but it's yours to do with as you'd like.
