An authentic antique copper slave tag stamped "Charleston, 532, Porter, 1841". The 2" x 2" (50 x 50mm) diamond-shaped token has a round hole at the top for hanging around the neck and the corners are folded to make it smaller. Has age-typical wear, hand punched numbers and good patina. Please judge condition from photos.
Found in an old estate with some Civil War bonds etc. From my brief research I see that the Charleston slave tags are the only ones that can be considered authentic, although many of them are obvious fakes. Although we are certainly not experts, we will guarantee this item.
