    Confederate Coin Silver Cup With "CSA" Engraving. This simply-styled, coin silver drinking cup was owned by Confederate General William Mahone. At 2" in diameter it was probably used for brandy or perhaps even whiskey. It is engraved on the front of the cup "CSA" in Old English script surrounded by scrollwork. The central cup tapers down to a ½" stem attached to a 1½" beaded disk. The cup is finished in a 2" square base. Although there are no hallmarks, it was likely made in Richmond, Virginia. This is an opportunity to own a personal object owned by one of the Confederacy's greatest heroes.

    Provenance: The Tharpe Collection of American Military History

    Exhibited: The Liberty Heritage Society Museum
