    Description

    "Brass Breast Pin Found on Custer Battle Field near Crow Agency Wyoming" is the period ink legend on this card to which is sewn a 1¾" heavy gauge brass disc. The disc is attached to the card too tightly to allow examination of the back but the piece is totally untouched and clearly of the period. Also included with the lot is a U.S. issue .45-70 round dated 1883, a .50 caliber Spencer round, a .38 caliber rimfire round, an inside primed .copper .45-70 blank and a smashed, clearly dug, .45-70 cartridge case. An interesting and historic grouping.
