Rare Fine Double Bullion Original Civil War Brigadier General Rank Straps
Rare Fine Double Bullion Original Civil War Brigadier General Rank Straps – This is perhaps the finest pair of Civil War Brigadier General’s rank straps we have encountered in a very long time. The straps exhibit a fine grade, double bullion surrounding a rare, deep blue velvet field, surmounted by a metallic single star, on each strap. The bullion and velvet are in superior condition, retaining vivid color and luster; the backs of the straps appear to have had a wool covering, at one time, which is now missing from both; the remnants of the thread to affix the backing remains, allowing one to see the buckram-like netting backing each strap. These General’s rank straps are really the best we have seen.
