Straps have the usual convex stamped brass false embroidered single border. The surfaces of each have a nice patina. The blue wool rank field has faded to a purple color. One strap has a fair amount of moth damage to the rank field while the other only has a small amount on one edge. Each have stamped brass false embroidered 1st Lieutenant bars.

The reverse is also covered in blue wool that has turned a purple color and suffers from scattered moth damage.

With the straps is a typed tag that reads “1ST LIEUTENANT SHOULDER STRAPS BELONGED TO CAPTAIN CHARLES S. DAVIS, CO. G 147TH PENNSYLVANIA VOLS. HE DIED FROM A WOUND AT RINGGOLD, OR TAYLORS’ RIDGE, GEORGIA ON NOVEMBER 27, 1863.”

Charles S. Davis was commissioned Captain of Company G, 147th Pennsylvania on September 15, 1862 and never held the rank of 1st Lieutenant. It is known that the former owner of these straps did receive a small group of items from the family of Captain Davis. It is not known if these straps were actually a part of that group, or if they were mistakenly labeled as such by the previous owner.  [ad]
