    28th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, PA- J(osiah) M. Christy, Sutler 25¢ ND (ca. 1861-65) Schenkman UI-JC-25CB About Uncirculated.
    For years, this has been listed as a Sutler issue. For years it has been listed as a Maverick issue; an issue whose location and background have eluded all efforts to identify them. A chance discovery by our consignor recently almost certainly solved this long standing mystery. A small entry in the Journal of the U.S. House of Representatives for the December, 1862 session indicated that a petition of Josiah M. Christy, sutler to the 28th regiment, Pennsylvania volunteers, was referred to the Committee on Military Affairs. The 28th was an Infantry regiment that mustered in on June 28, 1861. It served extensively, including participation in battles such as Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, the Atlanta campaign, Sherman's March to the Sea, and the Carolinas campaign before being mustered out on July 18, 1865. The unit suffered six officers and 151 enlisted men killed or mortally wounded due to enemy action and three officers and 124 enlisted men who died of disease for a total of 284 casualties. The cardboard scrip issued by Christy is printed in black ink on rose or pink colored cardstock. There is a bit of corner and edge scuffing, but no folds or creases. Decidedly rare and likely to stay that way.
