Who fought in the Civil War as lieutenant in the 7th Illinois Cavalry. His brothers also served; his brother Ira was wounded at the Battle of. Spotsylvania and died in Fredericksburg. He's identified inside of the case in period pencil. Dag is in excellent condition with original seals intact.
Case, a design which I think is considered rare. The case is intact though the leather on the spine is a bit delicate Dag has a tarnish ring. And a few random tarnish spots but no damage.
