My granddaughters were yard sale shopping this past week and bought me this Civil War Chess Set for $5.00. The board and pieces seem to be a plaster cast of some sort. One of the Union Knight pieces incurred some battle injuries, as the mounts front legs were cut off at the knees and the
soldier was decapitated. Fortunately, the horses legs & soldiers head was with the set and are now being reattached.
The chess board is 14-1/4" x 14'-1/4" x 1" thick.
Now I have to look for a nice table to set it on.
This is my third chess set, so does it count as a "collection" yet.
Thanks for looking,
