Brass Filigree Mirror attributed to M.B. Allebech
"In the late 1800s, Mahlon Boyer Allebach was one of Philadelphia’s most esteemed silversmiths and boasted an 'enviable reputation for the superiority of his work.' Though best known in his time as a watchmaker and jeweler, Allebach expanded his repertoire in the 1870s to include fine residential and commercial accessories, such as mirrors like the present example."

Marshall House Hotel Token
VA103, copper, 19mm
The Marshall House Hotel in Alexandria Virginia is known as the
location of the first "notable" casualty of what became the Civil War.
The owner of the hotel, a loyal Southerner, refused to lower the Stars
and Bars flag that he flew over his hotel when ordered to by Colonel
 Ellsworth. Col. Ellsworth and Private Brownell entered the hotel and
 removed the flag but as they were leaving the hotel owner, James T.
Jackson, shot and killed Ellsworth; he was shot and killed by Brownell.
