Measuring approximately 7/16 inch square, we have the advantage of being able to unquestionably date the period of these hand cut bone dice by virtue of the remains the faint* CROWN& G. R. marking on each of the two gaming pieces. (These marks were required by British export law during the American Civil War era to record and enforce payment of export tax on gaming devices sent to the American market.) A staple of the Civil War camp, period saloon or gambling parlor, this original pair remain in excellent condition and yet demonstrate all the characteristics of period hand cut bone gaming pieces. Clearly hand cut with dots that are somewhat irregular and a natural age patina, these dice will be quickly recognized for what they are in your collection display. [ *Please note that these original CROWN & GR tariff marks were small and were impressed into the bone with red pigment rubbed into the light impression. With time and use most if not all of the original red pigment has been worn away in most cases leaving the faintest trace of the original CROWN & GR. Identification of the remaining tariff marking will requiring close examination of the rare old hand cut die.] A scarce find! Buy with confidence!
