2nd CORPS BADGE IN RELIC CONDITION

$495.00

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 883-58

Iron 2nd corps badge has light surface rust. Reverse originally featured a soldered attachment pin with hook, but all that is present is the base of both. Corps badges were attached to the soldier’s hat or left side of the uniform. This avoided confusion on the battlefield as a soldier could quickly be identified. Corps badges became a great source of regimental pride to the men who wore them.  Recovered in the Richmond, VA area.

Excellent collectible.

Measures 1 ¾” across x 1 ¾” high.   [SM]
