The Beat of the Battlefield Finally Honored

This 1995 Civil War Battlefields Half Dollar Proof was struck to bring attention to the task of preserving the battlefields from the most wrenching conflict in American history. It features a drummer boy, an overlooked but important position. They drummed out the commands to all the troops on the battlefield. The reverse shows a silent Civil War cannon overlooking a battlefield. With the 150th anniversary of the Civil War here, these already 19-year-old commemoratives are increasingly difficult to find. In the process of hunting down this one-year-only design, we found a hoard in Texas and negotiated a deal to bring them all to you. Each is in Brilliant Proof condition.
