    Silver Civil War ID Tag with Exceptional History. 24mm, die stamped on the obverse "Chas Smith/ Co. B/ 1st Reg./ Exc./ Brigade/ Cleveland, Ohio". The reverse exhibits, in an arc at the top, "Peninsular Campaign" followed by a list of ten battles: "Bristow Station/ 2nd Bull Run/ Chantilly/ Fredericksburg/ Chancellorsville/ Gettysburg/ Wapping Heights/ Kelley's Ford/ Locust Grove/ Mine Run". The Mine Run Campaign was fought from November 27 to December 2, 1863. Perfect condition, loop at the top for suspension. This is doubtless Charles Smith who enlisted March 1, 1862, in the 70th New York Infantry (1st Excelsior Regt.). Beautiful ID tag with great history.
