Attached to the front is a large stamped brass spread-winged eagle with a New York Excelsior plate with a cutout number “1” over crossed sabers. The top of the crown has a yellow horsehair crest attached to a brass post minus any decoration. The base is a brass cone that tapers into a plain single post ending with a rosette at the top.
