ORIGINAL CIVIL WAR MEDICAL OFFICER’S GREEN SASH

$650.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 282-424

This is an original Civil War medical officer’s green sash in excellent condition.

Worn by officers in most of the branches of the United States Army, the waist sash was a common uniform accoutrement that signified a symbol of authority in the military during both field operations and camp duty. The sash, when worn over the frock coat, was wrapped twice around the waist and looped on the left side. The officer’s leather sword belt was worn over the sash.

This specimen still exhibits a rich, vibrant green color and is approximately 4 ¼” wide and 96” long in addition to a 9 ½” long tassel on each end. A very few strands within the tassels exhibit some minor color fade.

Civil War sashes are becoming difficult to find and medical department sashes being even rarer. This is as good a specimen as you can find.   [jet]
