    I think it is old. It may have been nicked by a plow over the years but the nicked area has the same patina as the rest of the coin. I know I didn't hit it with my shovel.

    The search is back on! I misread Mr. Frasca's e-mail. This guard is not from a Springfield. It is from a carbine or cadet rifle by some other maker.
