Default Civil War badge.

On a recent hunt a buddy of mine found this in a field site here in northwest Ohio. Part of the information is obvious but the question is what was this item used for and what is with the acorn in the number 14

I am only guessing but I think what you have is part of a reunion badge. Since you have that you might enjoy some of their history.

Thank you very much for this information. This is very interesting maybe if we searched in the area where the badge was found we can find some other pieces. My buddy will be excited to hear this news.
