DESCRIPTION

This is an original and authentic corps badge from the Civil War. We are selling this on a consignment for a customer and do not know the history or details about this badge. We do not know what corps it represents. It appears to be made of wool felt, a material that is rough to touch. It has a 'rope-like' border. The color is off-white or cream. We don't know if it has faded, no trace of another color. It is sewn to a black backing of wool felt. The badge measures about 1 1/2 inches square. The condition is good but worn and has holes. There is slight traces of 'gilting' gold on the rope cable border. There is a black paper backing attached on the back side of this badge. We have provided a few photos of this so you can get a good idea of its condition. This badge is a terrific piece of history and a 'must have' addition to any Union, Condederate or Civil War collecton!
