    Default Naval Insignia and Civil War artifacts?

    Hello All,

    I was recently given a box with some "Civil War memorabilia" in it. Looking for some help to identify the items as they are all unfamiliar to me.

    1st item is said to be used to prime and fire a cannon. Not sure what that's called, but has a small spring on it.

    2nd item is a naval insignia. Has an eagle holding an anchor and a cannon.

    3rd is a 1853 coin with what looks like a bullet hole in it??

    Couldn't figure out how to post pictures here (new to this forum and just getting into Civil War reenacting), but, anybody who thinks they can help I can email you pic's.

    Looks like item #1 I was asking about is an original Coiled Navy Friction Primer. Anybody know an approximate value for one of these?

    Still looking for help to ID the other items..........

    I can send pic's if you send me your email.........
