Non-Dug artifacts From The Civil War Era
Wonderful Pre-Civil War General Shoulder Epaulets With Paris Made Staff Buttons
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a beautifully crafted set! This is an original pair of shoulder insignia for a soldier with a General's rank. These are the shoulder epaulets and they have the single star on the top that lets us know the soldier held the rank of a Brigadier General. They also have the circular designation that has the "1" in the center of the red field. The red denotes the artillery branch of service and the 1 represents the 1st Regiment. These will date from the Mexican War until the late 1850's and are probably for a state militia general. One thing that is extra special about the epaulets are the buttons they utilize. These are the very high quality cuff size versions of staff officer buttons. They have the Union eagle in the center surrounded by the stars. This is the General Staff pattern of buttons that is listed as GS216 in Tice's button book. He states that these "...Extremely fine quality buttons were made for staff, or official / diplomatic use." You can see the remnants of the Paris maker's mark of the Cordier Cie. (Company) on the reverse. There is the majority of the original gilded brass bullion around the edge of each. On the undersides, they still have most of the lining and side designation. These are very cool and you get both of them for $595.00
