I know. I just cant get an ID on it. I figured American Digger Magazine would know but Butch and his staff didnt know. Looks like a knapsack to me and has a sword through it so no clue

Wow, a very interesting piece . It for sure looks like a period piece from the 1800's , but man have no idea on what it may be, but is a very cool find. Congrats

Default Pretty Cool

I'm leaning towards a Civil War related pin. It appears to be a soldiers knapsack with a bedroll or blanket attached to the top. Classic soldier's luggage with the blanket rolled on top.

It was in American Digger magazine about a year ago. Its a CSA square with the CSA rubbed off. Only 3 known to exist but he sold it. I do have pictures

Fully agree. Was going to post the same till I saw yours. It's a backpack with a bedroll. No clue other than that.
