#14918 - Smaller Union Captain Shoulder Rank Board
This is a Union Captains's shoulder rank board. The black cloth field indicates General Staff. The hand-built gilded wire construction over an open-back canvas form and edge rolls is from the Civil War period. However, the smaller size suggest later Civil War when wise officers reduced the visibility of their shoulder rank boards to keep from attracting the preferred attention of enemy snipers. (Wise move!) About 3 1/8" by 1 1/8". It comes in a free Riker case for safe & easy future display. These smaller variants are actually less common than the typical big ones!
