Civil War Locket

Civil War locket. This is a very rare locket dating back to the Civil War, it has two tintypes of a man and woman inside. There is glass on one side, it measures about 1 3/4" across and looks like it's made of bronze or brass. On both sides there is a picture of a uniformed officer riding a rearing horse, a shield at the bottom, and designs around the outside. The horse and rider look they're on a stage with columns on either side. It opens and snaps shut, the ring at the top is missing, I have not attempted to clean this. I don't know if this is from the Union or Confederate Army. The case seems to be a little flattened with use and age but does not detract from the piece or functionality. This is a museum quality artifact, it would make a significant addition to a Civil War collection.

Questions or comments on this piece are welcome!
