    I got this at an antique store today. I cannot confirm it's civil war era. I do know he had a lot of "civil war" relics in his booth and there were pics of excavations. So it's possible. They are made from bone...that part I know for sure.

      yeah I think it seems to be the case.

      Hard to date these. Bone dice were made long before and long after the Civil War.

      A Civil War connection usually adds premium pricing!

      I would also question the label of "DUG"-- don't think the bone would last long in the ground-- certainly not 100+ years!

      Sure bone can last in the ground for hundreds of years depending on the acidity of the soil. I have personally found 1 of these digging on a civil war battlefield in NC.
