1983 Franklin Mint National Historical Society Pewter Civil War Chess Set W/ COA. This is the American National Historical Society Pewter Civil War Chess Set from 1983 with pieces made by Franklin Mint.
It comes complete with the Certificate of Authenticity and the small information pamphlets about each chess piece. All pieces are included, and pieces have normal wear from usage, including some bending of the ends of figures, which an insert in the box says is normal of pewter objects. The chess box and the chess board also have significant wear from usage, which I tried to show as much as possible in my photos.Perhaps you could stain the wood to improve its appearance, and maybe use a chemical on the chessboard to clean it up, but as it stands the chess set very clearly shows its age and usage. Two felt feet are missing from the interior lid, as are two felt feet from the exterior case, but those can be replaced easily. The most important parts, the pieces, COA, and cards, are all present and accounted for.
