Civil War era 'COPPERHEAD' IDENTIFICATION DISK

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

An 1833 dated large cent (shown here with a quarter for size comparison) as was originally worn as a badge of identification by members of the frequently militant Peace Democrats or Copperheads of Civil War era notoriety. This pierced U.S. large cent retains a rich age patina and good evidence of period wear. The Copperheads were so-called by their opponents in recognition of their practice of wearing a pierced copper penny as a badge of identification as a Peace Democrat. (see: Excavated Artifacts from Battlefields & Campsites of the Civil War by Stanley Phillips) Offered as found some years ago when we were able to pick one up on occasion here in Maine where the Copperheads were extremely active in certain areas throughout the Civil War years. A neat item for political collectors ! please note: ALL ITEMS ARE CURRENT & AVAILABLE UNLESS MARKED SOLD!! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques!!
