Identification Disk

(John Gibson Collection)

John says it probably wasn't carried much, since it is virtually uncirculated. There has been speculation some of his company mates may have had it made for him given the way it is worded

During the last two months said soldier has been unfit for duty Sixty days. This man has been under observation for some time say four weeks in this hospital and it has become very evident that his arm is gaining but very slowly. I am of opinion it will be many months before he will be well enough to do duty of any kind.

Station: U.S. Gen. Hospital Brattleboro Vt.
Date: Oct. 16, 1863
