This is a great item that was sold from this website previously and then returned to us as the watch needs repair. It is wonderfull and the only Gold Watch with presentation that I have ever come across. The inscription reads, "Presented by Co. H, 52 Reg. P.V. To Capt. E. R. Peckens at Beaufort, SC. April 30, 1863". Peckens (spelled "Peckins" in the National Archives) served with the 52nd at Lee's Mills, Williamsburg, Seven Pines and Fair Oaks. A folder with his records and regimental history are included.
