Description:The old adage that the life of a soldier is 99% boredom, 1% terror probably UNDERstates the boredom factor. Boys being boys, a lot of poker was played and bullets flattened into chips are relatively common items recovered in the old camps. I understand that the soldiers tended to get very religious when headed out to battle and so typically dumped their gaming items like this chip. Of course, the supply of bullets, aka future poker chips, was never in short supply. This one is an inch and a third in diameter.
