Silver "Star" Badge - Inventory Number: CON 172
Incredible example fashioned from a silver dollar with large American Eagle and period "T" bar pin device on reverse. While in the Confederacy it was commonly used by Texas and Mississippi troops, the star was also used by the Union 12th and 20th Corps, as well as for general patriotic symbolism. This example has a wonderful uncleaned patina and elaborate detail to the hand engraving.
