FALSE-EMBROIDERED ARTILLERY OFFICER’S INSIGNIA

$180.00 SOLD
Originally $225.00

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 490-2557

Measuring 1½ inches wide and 1 inch tall, this is a very nice example of the commercial die-struck gilt brass insignia available for private purchase (by officers or enlisted men with style) that imitated bullion embroidery. The small size was perfect for wear on the front of a low-crown forage cap or even the top. Campbell and O’Donnell illustrate several shown in period photographs, including one on the front of NY artillery sergeant’s cap, and another actual example on the top of an 11th NY Battery cap with a corps badge. This one is identical to their Figure 296, which they describe as a common wartime style and one that was also held over for a time on West Point headgear.

This has nice mellow patina with no bends or breaks. All four pins are present and secure on the reverse. One pin has a slight bend. The thin solder holding them has some appropriate age discoloration. This is a very nice example that would fit a Civil War insignia, uniform, or artillery collection.  [sr] [ph:m]
