Civil War era frock coat hem weight

Found where a Civil War camp once was. Betting it was from a union soldiers coat. Some folks think these were only used in curtains and dresses - not so...many are found in old war camps, like this one.

Not likely so many of these would be found on camp sites and be "dress weights" Neutral
