Rare Non-excavated Civil War Issue Picket Pin
Rare Non-excavated Civil War Issue Picket Pin – We have had several excavated pickets pins, but this is only the second, non-dug one we have encountered. This pin retains almost all of its original black lacquer paint and is in superior condition, almost comparable to the day it was originally issued. In addition, this pin exhibits an unusual and deeply stamped “US” at the middle of the pin proper. This is quite a rare Civil War cavalry accessory.
