Brass stencil belonging to James Miner of the 10th Vermont Volunteer Infantry. James would muster with Company C starting in September, 1862. The 10th Vermont would see considerable action during their enlistment. Fighting in no less than 15 major engagements. The Wilderness, Spotsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg and a number of other significant battles. James would apparently manage to survive unscathed and would be mustered out in June, 1865. This is one of the larger stencils you will see measuring 2″ x 6″. Generally these measure just a couple of inches long. Some deterioration to the brass on the far end of the first name. Quite rare in this size.
