Default Confederate reins guide found in Central Illinois

I found this back in November at a house site that dates back to the 1850s. I knew what it was when I found it, however I had no idea it was a Confederate relic, until I looked it up a couple days ago. You just never know what you will find!

I agree, I love green as much as silver.
