This stamped brass device is an excellent example of a Civil War Artillery officer’s hat insignia. Device features two long cannon tubes crossed below their center points. Made to mimic the regulation insignia that was constructed of embroidered bullion thread, these stamped brass variants were much sturdier in the field. This specimen is in very good condition. The one-piece insignia measures about 2 5/8” wide and is 1 5/8” high. This piece shows a pleasing, original gilt finish on the face while the back is bright and untarnished. There are no bends, dents or blemishes. Piece retains three of the four original, small brass wires soldered to the body. Reference Figure 270 in Campbell & O’Donnell’s “Headgear Insignia.”

A fine specimen of a hard-to-find Civil War artillery officer’s hat insignia.  [jet]
