Click on an image to enlarge
This is an original pair of artillery 1st Lieutenant's Civil War officer shoulderboards. This is the beautifully false embroidered style version. This is the version that is completely unmarked but they are the metal backed construction like the Smith Patent boards. They are for the rank of 1st Lieutenant because of the single bar in the field in the center of the board inside of the stamped brass border. We know that these are for the artillery branch of service because of their red color in the center that still retains a cool looking tone. One of the red fields, has some writing, possibly a name, but I can't read it. The boards are in attractive shape with the wear here and there as you can see in the pictures. The overall size of each board measure 3-3/4ths inches by 1-5/8ths inches in overall size. You get both straps for $395.00. This pair will make a nice addition to your Civil War Artillery display.
