    I agree with everyone else. That flying eagle is in awesome shape! Congrats! Did you clean it with peroxide? Oh and I like the pipe too!

    Thanks. It had some crust stuck on it from whatever it was lying on for 160 years, finger nailed that off as much as I could and toothbrushed it. Put vaseline on it and wiped clean. Got lucky on this one.

    Cool finds .. Just out of curiosity, how were you able to determine that letter was a Company F, and not a letter off of a hame cover?

    I posted a few pics on the Civil War Relic Hunters Facebook Page for confirmation. I wasn't sure but the size and text style are on line. The site that I found it has produced a lot of Civil War stuff, which you may have already seen some of my previous posts, both confederate and union items.

    Thanks again everyone for all of your comments! I know that these flying eagles are rare and I have been lucky enough to get my coil over 5 of them so far (4 of them just from this site since November). This one is by far the best condition. There was so much history packed into this site (and still there that we will never get to).
