Click on an image to enlarge
What a great original Civil War excavated set of two shoulder scales. This is the pattern of brass pieces that once adorned the shoulders of the soldier's uniform. They were designed to protect the soldier against shoulder strikes from sabers. As you can imagine they made a word of noise when the soldier would run and they were bright and shiny and made a heck of a target. With these things in mind you can understand why most of them were discarded in the early days of the war. They even have the spring portion present on the underside. They come nicely displayed in an 8 by 12 inch riker style display case on red cloth. They also have a note stating that they were found in Corinth, Mississippi. Corinth was the site of a fierce battle in October of 1862. It was also the staging area for the Confederates before the Battle of Shiloh. It is 20 miles from Shiloh. You get them both for only $195.00. They have a great look all over and will display well in your relic room.
