UNKNOWN ROSSETTE DUG IN VICKSBURG
It was probably lost prior to the War for Southern Independence, perhaps even before the Revolutionary War. I'd guess it's English. The French, Spanish and English all claimed this part of the country at one time or another, so it could be from a military unit from any of these three, or even an unknown American military unit. It's 35 MM in diameter, convex in shape. Any guesses?
