Cape Pin / Watch Fob of "Unknown Soldier"

This excavated "unknown soldier" cape pin/watch fob is a rare piece.  According to Howard Crouch's book "Civil War Artifacts" on page 173, item #1, this particular pin is that of the unknown soldier.  This small relic of the war was proudly worn by a soldier who most likely had acquired it from a sutler as these were not government issue items.  The overall condition of the charm is very good.  On the front, angled under a good light, the details of the soldiers jacket are visible.  The digger lightly clear coated the front and back, most likely, as a measure to preserve it.  I believe the material to be brass as most of these charms I have encountered are.  This fantastic little personal item was recovered by the late James Renfrow Sr. at Harrison's Landing in Charles City County, VA.  James was a hunting buddy of the renowned relic hunter Gene Cooley. This device measures approximately 1.3 inches from top to bottom.
