This is the top portion only of a two piece wooden flag pole. During the Civil War most regimental colors were mounted on a two piece pole like this one. The sections were mated together by a threaded brass cylinder at the center point.

The top of the section offered here has a heavy, solid cast brass, spread-winged eagle perched on an orb with a brass ferrule approx. 3.00 inches long. This finial is attached by a single screw.

The exposed wooden shaft meas. approx. 62.00 inches long, is in good condition with no cracks.

The bottom of this section has both of the brass connectors. The one from the top section AND the one from the bottom. However, the bottom section of the wood shaft is missing. All that is needed to complete this pole is a bottom section of wood which can be attached to the lower brass connector which already has a hole to secure it in place.

This item comes from a Pittsburgh collection. The former owner states that the pole once had a tag stating it was from “the black GAR Post in Pittsburgh.” If this is correct the only black GAR Post research has turned up in Pittsburgh was the Robert G. Shaw Post #206.   [ad]

This item may present some difficulties in packaging to ship it. We would recommend that if you wish to purchase it, that it be picked up at the shop, or we can transport it to any of the militaria shows that we do. If that is not feasible, we will do our best to get it to you.
