    I don't know anything about CW relics except what i read here.
    Could be from a gift shop or reenactors that dropped it.
    It's a cool pin that's for sure, but if old I don't know.
    Hope it's old and CW

    I see the back is stamped with a P which indicates it was made by Parsley Brass .. famous for Civil War reproductions, It could have been made as a souvenir, too, but it definitely is not Civil War era.

    If that was out in the elements for 156 years that pin would be long gone. Looks like a gift shop pick up.
