Civil War corps badges can be a minefield for the collector and cloth badges are especially hard to judge. Here is one that you can sleep at night owning. This comes from the archive of material preserved by Major John M. Deane 29th Massachusetts. Deane saw early service in the 3rd Mass Volunteer Militia and then went immediately into the 29th Mass, rising from 1st Lieutenant to Adjutant, Captain and Major. The 29th is perhaps best known for its service in the Irish Brigade, but also had very active service after its transfer to the 9th Corps in late 1862. Deane served throughout the war and was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions at Fort Stedman, which thwarted Lee’s last attempt to break the siege of Petersburg.

The shield badge of the 9th Army corps had been adopted in 1862. Deane preserved a copy of a 9th Army Corps general order of 1864 restating the requirement that all officers and men in the organization wear it upon their hats or caps. At the top of the page he pinned one of the badges issued to him, at the bottom and identified it, “The above is one of the Badges issued to me while in the service JM Deane.”

This is a rare opportunity not just to acquire a real Civil War corps badge, but an issue cloth one, and one owned by a Medal of Honor winner as well.  [sr]
