Smith received a patent on June 18, 1861 for a metallic false embroidered shoulder strap. This is a beautiful pair of 2nd lieutenant of infantry straps. These straps are 1 ½ inches wide and 4 inches in length. The stamped-brass, false embroidered border is 7/16” wide. Blue field retains good color with light wear to the surface nap. No patent stamp appears on the undersides. One strap retains all 10 of the short wires that hold the components together while the other has 7 wires remaining.
