Soldiers Medal
Item #: NEW-0013590

Click image to enlarge
Here's a medal that is highly sought as it is not given out very lightly.  Criteria: Awarded to any person of the Armed Forces of the United States or of a friendly foreign nation who, while serving in any capacity with the Army of the United States, distinguished himself or herself by heroism not involving actual conflict with an enemy. Often, the medal is awarded to soldiers who risk their lives to save other people. The medal can be awarded in peacetime if the soldier's heroism is held to be equal to or greater than the level which would have justified an award of the Distinguished Service Cross if the act had taken place in combat.

The medal is not named so there is no way to link it to the soldier.  Good condition. It is repelled by a magnet and is heavy so it is bronze.  It has a crimped brooch.

Early Frontier Leather Tinder Kit with Flint-Making Fire
Item #: NEW-0011450

Click image to enlarge
This item measures a little over two inches wide.  When you open it up there are two compartments and the flint was found in one little pocket.  The tinder would have been in the other pocket.  Two holes in the top where the strap probably was. Note the stone striker is hanging from the bottom. The leather inside the kit is more worn than the outer.  I believe this looks old enough to have been carried during the Revolutionary War or perhaps as late as the Indian Wars. Who knows but I would love to know where it has been.

Lot of Uniform Buttons-War of 1812-Recent Dig-Savannah Ga
Item #: NEW-0010606

Click image to enlarge
This lot consists of eight buttons, most I have identified as being from 1812.  They were sold to me as all being from that period but I have not done exhaustive research on them.  The patina is very heavy but most are clear enough to easily identify and some are quite sharp.  Four have the complete shank and the others only have remnants of the shank.  I have not been able to see any back marks and if present in the first place have been lost to the ages.  The small rounded button has only enough relief to see that it is an eagle.  The back side has two stars above and below the shank and are quite sharp.  There may be something else but I can't tell what it was.  I was told that these were recently dug in Savannah at the site of a new excavation.  The buttons are from infantry and artillery.  Examples are: three 1Reg and one which reads 1Corps.

1919-1920 Roster-Georgia Military Academy-Plus Insignia
Item #: NEW-0010207

Click image to enlarge
The scan only shows a third of the complete roster for the year 1919-1920 but it is complete and in alphabetic order.  Folds, some crumpling around the folds and tears at top edge.  The insignia and ribbon came with the roster and hopefully all are related to GMA, which is now a Junior College as well as a military academy. The ribbon is very dingy and the G M A has the pin missing.
