This is a very pretty piece that often causes discussion. It is the stamped brass shield that has the star design in the center. It is often referred to as a Confederate leather ornament for Texas or Mississippi. I have never seen this documented but it sure sounds good. I think that it was actually a civilian leather decoration that was occasionally used by Southerners from Texas and Mississippi. I have seen them excavated in Campsites and this one is in nice excavated condition. The verbal history on this piece is that it was found in the Vicksburg, Mississippi. The brass has a gorgeous brown and tan tone to the brass. On the reverse of the piece it has a fine amount of the original lead backing intact. It no longer has any of the original three brass attachment pins intact. The overall size of the piece measures 2-1/2 inches by 2-1/8ths inch in size. This is a great looking excavated shield with star ornament.
