INDIAN WAR PERIOD INFANTRY SECOND LIEUTENANT’S SHOULDER STRAPS

$150.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1087-41

This is a nice pair of Indian War period shoulder straps for a lieutenant of infantry using a medium blue background. The borders are gilt bullion with rubbing and oxidation to the gilt on the high points but showing in the recesses. The gilt jaceron (or jacqueron) border wires are in place.

The U.S. army went to white as a branch of service color for infantry in 1886, so these straps likely predate that, but certain departments like the Pay Department, Inspector General’s Department, etc., kept using dark blue long after that date, and state regulations might vary.    [sr]
