CIVIL WAR VETERAN’S CAVALRY BADGE

$250.00 SOLD
Originally $295.00

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 142-53

An 1880s period cavalry veteran’s badge. The crossed sabers indicative of cavalry service are superimposed upon a five-pointed star and this is suspended from top bar with scrolled bottom edge and pin back. The top bar is blank, but had room for a veteran’s name if he had chosen to have it engraved. The star could indicate service with the Twelfth or Twentieth Corps, but cavalry units assigned to army corps were usually small and temporary and in this case the star is likely more a patriotic motif. The badge has a pleasing medium bronze tone with just a little darkness and slight verdigris in the recessed areas behind the saber. The pin is in place and functional. This would go well in a cavalry or G.A.R. display.   [sr]
