Misc. Non-Excavated
Set of Civil War N.C.O. Version Brass Shoulder Scales by Horstmann
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is an original Civil War 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. That is why you don't often see them in non-excavated condition like these. One of them still has the spring portion present on the underside. The spring bar portion is marked by the famous retialing firm of Horstmann of Philadelphia. If you notice these are the slightly larger size that were designed to be worn by Non-Commissioned Officers. The smaller size were worn by enlisted men. They have a great look all over and will display well in your relic room.
