    T64 $500 1864 with Poem Inscribed on Back.
    The poem that is penned on the back of this piece is attributed to Major Sidney Alroy Jonas. It is meticulously inscribed with all lines of the poem, starting with first verse:

    Representing nothing on God's earth now,
    And naught in the waters below it,
    As the pledge of a nation that's dead and gone,
    Keep it, dear friend, and show it.

    A lovely piece that cannot be definitively attributed to Jonas, but most certainly a veteran's memento. PCGS Very Fine 25, with some missing pieces and minor rust.
