    6th New Jersey Volunteers: Benjamin Anderson Dog Tag.
    31 mm silvered white metal. The obverse depicts "George Washington Born February 22. 1732." The reverse is stamped "B. Anderson./ Co. G./ 6th Reg./ War of 1861/ N.J.V./ Camden, N.J." Some light corrosion (ground action) around perimeter of obverse; otherwise, in great condition with outstanding aesthetic appeal, especially so on the stamped reverse. Anderson enlisted on August 9, 1861 as a private. He was taken prisoner at the 6th New Jersey's first battle - Williamsburg, Virginia - and paroled. It was in the vicinity of Williamsburg that this incredible tag was excavated. An exceptional piece!
