RELIC CIVIL WAR SHOULDER EPAULETTE

$67.50 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 889-85

This is a single, excavated Civil War shoulder epaulette. Stamped brass. Recovered out of the Neuse River in front of Fort Spinola near New Bern, North Carolina. Since this piece was recovered from the silt in the river, there is no patina on the brass and all of the iron components have rusted away. The long brass “slide” is also missing from the underside.  There are dents on the “clam shell” portion, but otherwise displays nicely as a complete epaulette.  Attractive bright yellow color typical of water recoveries.   [jet]
