NON-EXCAVATED, FALSE EMBROIDERED CIVIL WAR CROSSED CANNON INSIGNIA

$225.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 410-485

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 ¾” wide x 1 ¾” high. This piece shows a pleasing, original gilt finish. There are no bends, dents or blemishes. Piece retains all 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]
