Item Code: 2022-1025

Very nice set of cased brush epaulettes. They come in the usual japanned tin case with an interior that has an unusual metallic blue painted surface. The box is complete with latch and carrying handle. Forward of the carrying handle is a faint maker’s mark. All that can be made out is “WASHINGTON D.C.” Exterior of the box has light scattered scratches from age and storage.

The bodies of the epaulettes are made of padded ribbed gold cloth outlined with alternating bullion thread, three rows of bright billion followed by two rows of dead bullion. The “clam shells” are made of bright, clean brass outlined with a double row of dead bullion.

Each epaulette has a pillow with a number “5” at center. The numeral is made of heavy gold bullion thread on a blue felt field outlined in silver dead bullion and alternating strands of bright bullion. At one end of each epaulette is and infantry “I” eagle button.

From one end of each epaulette hangs bright twisted gold bullion tassels. The condition is excellent.

Undersides of each epaulette is lined with yellow cloth and have a long thin iron hook for attaching to the uniform. The lining of both epaulettes is badly frayed and torn exposing some of the padding beneath the “clam shell.”   [ad] [ph:L]
