Original, circa 1890's-1900, gold-filled, lapel stickpin, belonging to a one Private Christopher Ehni, from Somerville, NJ. I was able to determine that it belonged to him by going through the 30th NJ Regiment, and Company E's roster. Mr. Ehni was the only fellow within this Company having these initials. I also was able to obtain where he is interred, and will be included with this piece, as well as the Unit Civil War history. This pin was tested for gold content, and it was found to be gold filled. In our photos this piece appears to be discolored, and all scratched, however this is not the case, and is in excellent condition. It really is not scratched, and is actually a bright "rose gold" color. It is just our photos, you will definitely enjoy its actual condition which is in very near mint condition. The "circle" shape of this pin indicates, as well as the small circle at center of this stickpin, to be from the 1st Corps, which used the circle as its Corps Insignia shape. The stickpin measures 2-5/8" in length, by 3/4" across its coggle edged center. This piece appears to have been hand stamped, and hand engraved by a jeweler. Hurry while it is still available! Our photos should tell you just about all of the rest. Any and all inquiries will be answered. However, please give us a little time to respond if asking near or on the weekend, as we might be away on business.
